Air Ride Seats?

Another crazy idea, I was driving along today and decided that suspension seats sounded like a good idea. I know that ford offers them in there 6-750 trucks, but has anyone seen or heard of them in 2-550 superduties?

Cool idea.. IIRC most of our international trucks' seats at work are basically a scissor design....Not sure on the actually air part of it. We could just use a suspension air bag couldn't we?
