Ford Debuts The Airstream Concept and Ford Sync at NAIAS

The concept is powered by a plug-in hydrogen hybrid fuel cell drivetrain-called HySeriesDrive-that operates under electric power at all times. This advanced fuel cell system is half the weight and cost of today’s fuel cells and delivers the combined city/highway equivalent fuel economy of 41 miles per gallon.

The concept’s bold, futuristic front-end explores a new look for Ford, encapsulating the single-surface grille and headlamps into the same graphic. Each of the concept’s bold orange-trimmed window graphics is a unique shape.

Its doors are asymmetric as well, allowing for easy loading of passengers and cargo. In addition to the driver’s side hatch, the passenger side features a power clamshell door thataruns two-thirds the length of the vehicle and a three-door hatch finishes the rear of the crossover.

The Ford Airstream Concept features a floating instrument panel with flush-mounted, touch-sensitive controls and a multi-function single gauge display provides the driver all primary information.

A Sharp dual-view screen centrally mounted on the instrument panel provides a camera view and secondary driver-oriented information, while allowing the front-seat passenger to post mobile blogs. The driver and front-seat passenger will travel in style, seated in modern, pod-shaped swiveling captain’s chairs that also rotate so they can easily socialize.

In the rear, lounge-like seating is sculptural, creating a continuous cocoon-like environment wrapped in bold red fabric. The rear focal point is a 360-degree screen for entertainment, games and ambient mood settings that include a modern lava lamp and virtual fire.

A possible next-generation safety belt system incorporates a four-point “belt-and-suspenders” design in lieu of the familiar three-point safety belt. The four-point belts are featured in the front seats of the Ford Airstream Concept.

FORD SYNC
Also new to Ford is the Ford Sync. Ford and Microsoft are launching a new factory-installed, in-car communications and entertainment system that is designed to change the way consumers use digital media players and mobile phones in their vehicles. The Ford-exclusive technology, called Sync, provide consumers the convenience and flexibility to bring into their vehicle nearly any mobile phone or portable music player and operate it using voice commands or the vehicle’s steering wheel or radio controls. Because Sync is fully upgradeable, Ford owners will never need to worry about whether their car or truck is compatible with the latest phone or music player that hits the market.

 

A Quick Note From Our Founder –

Over the past few years I’ve taken a very special interest in helping people reduce the amount of inflammation in their bodies. Please take a moment to read Thomas DeLauer’s incredible story and how he was able to completely rid his body of dangerous inflammation.

Thank you!

Proline Expert Thomas DeLauer’s 7-Day
Anti-Inflammatory Reboot

Inflammation is holding us back in so many ways, and no one is really explaining it to us. All we know is that it’s “bad,” but no one wants to tell us about how it’s keeping us from losing weight and how it’s making us feel like garbage. Mainly because the food lobbyists don’t want us to dip into their profits when we find out that inflammation is caused by most of the so-called healthy foods that we are eating now!

IMPORTANT: My results are not typical. As with any weight loss program, your results may vary greatly.

When I was 275lbs and struggling with my weight, the last thing that I thought about was inflammation causing my problems… I had always resorted to the basics… simple calories in vs. calories out to lose weight, BUT that was NOT the case here. There was something bigger at play because I was literally doing everything that I was ‘supposed’ to do.

Meanwhile, my wife was diagnosed with an auto-immune disease that effected her thyroid (hashimoto’s) and later, Lyme disease. It was the serendipitous timing of this that made me realize that inflammation might be playing a larger role then I had thought. I’m sure many of you have heard of these diseases, and the scary thing is that they can be affecting you and you might not even know it!

To make a very long story short, I began learning about inflammation, using my resources within the healthcare industry to dive into some heavy research on how inflammation works and how it could be holding my wife and I (and others) from living the lives that we wanted to live. Like so many others, it’s easy to not even realize you’re being held back.

I found that inflammation can cause all kinds of issues in the digestive tract making it so that you’re not absorbing nutrients. This was a HUGE step, because I WAS eating healthy, but I couldn’t lose weight at all! So when I realized that there were specific “health foods” that I was eating that were causing this to happen, it all made sense….

If you’re not absorbing nutrients, then you body goes into starvation mode and that means that you will store fat! It’s a simple survival mechanism! This was the code that needed to be cracked! I needed to find a way to reduce the activity of the COX-1 enzyme and the production of prostaglandins (a fancy way of saying ‘how inflammation is caused”)

But the difficulty was finding a way to rid my body of the inflammation so that I could begin absorbing nutrients again. And back then, this was a long drawn out process, simply because the science wasn’t really there at the time. Most of us don’t really have the time or the energy to devote to experimenting with different foods to find what works for them.

Well, I did reduce my inflammation, and I was able to get back on track and ultimately become on author on this very topic, but it took a lot of time.

So over the past six months, using my experiences and my research I have developed a way to reduce inflammation within the body and to help the body absorb nutrients again, all with a WHOLE FOODS approach. As someone that has been in the healthcare industry before, I wanted to make sure this was a down-to-earth way to reduce inflammation.

Anyhow, it has been awesome to see how many people have been having success and not just reducing inflammation, but truly losing weight and kick starting their new lives feeling utterly amazing!

I want to invite you to take a look at the full protocol and the actual program and steps that you need to take right here

Just seeing some of the pain being lifted from people and seeing them realize what had been causing them so much grief before…
