Crazy Wheels Let Car Do the Electric Slide

by Shane McGlaun

You may have never heard of omni-directional car wheels. I certainly hadn’t. What that means are wheels and tires that allow the vehicle to move in any direction you need it to within the length of its body. Just watch the bitchin’ Toyota Echo in this video equipped with omni-directional wheels and tires invented by William Liddiard.

The special wheels allow the car to spin, slide, and move in ways that no normal car can match. The builder doesn’t let on just how he created these wheels, but says the tires use the same materials normal tires do, and the tires are subject to an incredible 24,000 pounds of torque.

The video show the tires moving in a rolling fashion, moving the car around like it’s on the shoulders of millions of ants who want to eat the car or dinner. Check it out, and watch these cool wheels in action. I rather need these for parallel parking.
