    Brake Force One?

    http://reviews.mtbr.com/brake-force-one-preview

    Look pretty damned nice! Anyone seen/tried them yet? I like the concept... Similar to Shimano's servo-wave but executed entirely within the hydraulic circuit.

    Designed by a kid genius and not mass produced, especially not made in China. Could stop better than Code if that is your thing.....

    Bike Magazin had a few printed articles on these, but the online articles look different than what I read, here's what I found on their site for you:
    Neue High-End-Bremse: BrakeForceOne - Nachrichten*|*BIKE das Mountainbike Magazin - Europas Nr. 1
    Fahrbericht: Jakob Lauhoff und die Brake Force One - Komponenten + Zubehör*|*BIKE das Mountainbike Magazin - Europas Nr. 1
    Brake Force One mit ****erbunten, leuchtenden Bremsen - Events*|*BIKE das Mountainbike Magazin - Europas Nr. 1
    this comparison test is probably most interesting to you:

    Though to get the full article you have to either login or pay a small fee to download.
