Cars without tyres are like humans without legs.At Geneva,Goodyear just displayed a new version of what could be the tyres of the future .Some of you might have seen it science fiction ,but soon enough it would become reality.
The new version looks way more “techy” and “smarter” and cooler.
Here is what the previous version looked like :
Let me give you a quick breakdown
- Its 3D printed
- Its spherical
- Its connected to your car by magnetic levitation (simplified -it won’t be mechanically connected to the car,it would be suspended away from the car but connected to it magnetically)
- Since its spherical you can drive sideways without actually needing to drift the normal way you would on regular tyres.
- It has sensors that detects the road conditions and adjust the speed of the car depending on the road condition(for example slowing down on a rough road).
- The sensors on the tyre also periodically monitor the wear and tear on the threads and alerts you when needed.
This is a video of the presentation of the previous version:
