One of the world’s leading companies producing the tires for cars has came up with new concept – a spherical tire called Eagle-360.
The new spherical tire which should be produced by 3D-printing has amazing performance. One of the main features it offers is that the tires are not connected to the car at all. So, we are not talking just about tires but also wheels. So, Goodyear plans to produce wheels for cars which use magnets to connect with the car and the rest of car is actually levitating over them. This allows cars to move in any direction at any time without turning.
Parking with cars who would use a technology similar to this one would be as simple as pushing a single button.
The new concept is unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show. With this design Goodyear targets autonomous vehicles which are expected to heavily hit the market by the 2035.
