This in my opinion is one of those great ideas in concept, but in practicality is not so great.
First I have my doubts as to being safer (I could see more safety issues), but just from a mechanical aspect this is just another mechanical part to break down and unlike an electric window or door lock, this looks to be a major bug if & when this does break down.
The laughable aspect from my prospective is that they used a Ford product to which I have YET to own one that the electric windows, door locks, etc did not break down within a few years. In our case even repairs have yet to yield a complete fix and so if Ford (or maybe others too) cannot get an electric window right, what is to convince me they can get this more complicated system with more potential dangerous ramifications if and when it does fail?
