Eminent Cycles Launches the Haste - First Look
I wish these guys the best of luck with this, however... As has often been said (here and other places), to make a million in the bike business, you need to start with two. While I am personally a fan of this style of suspension, it isn't a game changer, won't steel business from other very well established brands/product, and they are basically starting at the ground level with no reputation in terms of ride, durability, after service, warranty support, etc (not a small thing considering the level of investment). Comments to branding aside, in a crowded market (loaded with solid options) with no demonstrable point of differentiation I hope they have deep pockets and are ready to play the long game.

@kleinblake: I think that was found on the original Fisher RS1 and maybe the Rotek's (sp?). On the Yeti's and Schwinn's the low pivot was behind the BB.

@shizzon: the original system suffered from brake jack (4banger/straight6). Schwinn engineered and prototyped a similar floating link to isolate brake forces (similar to what was on the DH versions) but never prouced it. This looks pretty clean IMO, interested to see how it functions.

There was a banner at this years Interbike with a picture of Doug Bradbury (Manitou founder) sitting astride a prototype that looks a lot like this, but no mention in the article...

Mert let the patent expire a while back due to lack of interest.

Lawwill patent for sure, also fond on Schwinn during the Homegrown era, on several different models, one of which was on the leading edge of the AM movement back in the early 2000's. These bikes rode really well with one flaw (except for the DH versions), they suffered from brake jack, which this design appears to work around with the floating mount. Otherwise, they we efficient, tracked well and provided excellent traction. Color me interested.

SKS RideAir Tubeless Inflation Bottle - Review
Yeah but, Elcamino!!! Have to agree though, while I am sure there are niche applications the idea that this would be carried along for a ride seems absurd to me.
