It was used during the tour de france - uses servos and is lighter than current components - I guess the lack of springs and cables helps there.

IIRC Suntour had a version, and Chris Boardman used a Mavic setup on some of his time trials.

I remember the suntour system too, very cool and I think the mavic system was called zapp. This would be great on a TT bike, multiple shifting and no cable woes.

Di-2 Dura-Ace is very tasty. I've already previewed it.

Cabled system for better reliability/battery life than wireless.
Option of "remote" shifters on TT bikes.
Auto-trim for front mech.
Very elegant aswell. Expect to see the odd frame designed purely for this system.

The promised Total integration of computer/HRM etc into this system is the stuff a tech-heads dreams are made of.
