A futuristic bicycle that takes its inspiration from TRON’s lightcycles. It has hubless wheels, airless tires, a carbon fiber frame, integrated LED illumination, a wealth of sensors, and an optional electronic gearbox. And yes, the bike shown in the video is a real, working prototype.
Visitors to China’s Stone Forest Gorge now have the opportunity to take a walk on this crazy 4400+ square foot cantilevered glass platform, which floats more than 1300 feet above the valley’s floor below. It looks a whole lot like the Starship Enterprise when viewed from above.
These amazing wheels allow a car to not only move in the typical directions, but to turn on a dime or move sideways. Their inventor says they’re driven using 24,000 pounds of torque directly on the tires, and are more precise and durable than prior omni-directional wheels.
