Making a Stove from Wheel Rims

Wheel rims from a car seem like an odd material for building a wood-burning stove, but that’s exactly what André Göbel of Create Custom Designs did, a set of old steel rims to provide the structure for a cylindrical stove inspired by Bullerjan stoves, which use bent pipes to circulate cold air from the bottom and out of its top.

Revolve splits the tire into segments, which are then mounted on a hexagonal frame. The frame lets you collapse the wheel into a pod that’s 60% smaller than normal. Inventor Andrea Mocellin hopes it will lead to transforming and compact transportation devices.

The latest gen wheel illumination from MonkeyLectric is designed to automatically turn on and off as you pedal, displaying bright and eyecatching colors and designs as your wheels spin. A new hub-mounted rechargeable battery makes them easier to use than ever.

Mecanum-wheeled Robots

These unusual wheels have found their way onto fork-lifts and other machinery in recent years, allowing vehicles to maneuver in all directions, and in very tight spaces without a steering rack. Here, we see some Robotnik Summit XL OMNIs strutting their stuff.

Ridiculous Rims

Footage of a drop-top Nissan Murano sporting a set of insane 34″ Amani forged wheels. The proportions of the Murano convertible were already wacky, and adding these crazy rims just make it more so. Also, we wouldn’t want to drive it faster than 20 mph.

Alloygators
