Airtrax – reinventing the wheel August 13, 2007

Posted by Al in : clever,invention,transport,video , trackback

It’s not often that someone can actually claim to have reinvented the wheel, but in this case they really have, and it’s very cleverly done as well. Instead of a standard wheel you get angled rollers set on each rim, which means that with a little bit of clever electronics the wheels can negate forward and backward movement, whilst still providing sideways thrust – the result is a wheel which can go in any direction, allowing perfect 360’s within a vehicle’s own length and true sideways movement. Truly amazing!
