LAS VEGAS, NV. — On Tuesday, we shared the SEMA New Products Award winners.

Click through the slideshow above for 19 other products that caught our attention at SEMA, including the revolutionary MSD Brainwave.

Introduced at a press conference today, the Brainwave is a comprehensive tuning system that allows key components to work seamlessly with one another—even if they’re from different manufacturers. The system acquires data from each component via one common network. This eases installation and reduces the number of wires. You can then monitor, control, and program different performance parameters for optimal performance with one wireless device, whether its an iPad or MSD handheld controller.

Right now, the Brainwave technology is available in MSD products, such as the Atomic LS EFI and TCM, but other manufacturers are buying into the technology and have agreed to produce products that will tie into the Brainwave system. This will make installation even simpler as the components will essentially just plug into the MSD system and work together in harmony.
