Japan Week continues at WT with a look at the “Airless” tire being developed by Bridgestone and reported by DesignBoom
Could these be better than your classic spoked tire? While I like the fun look, traditional bike wheels are pretty excellent, durable and cheap.
I’d love to get my hands one one of these, while I text with the other hand.
Look Ma, no air!
Bridgstone also seems to think this is a good idea for cars too!
This would look great on my Hummer!
It looks like it’s Japanese week here at WT!
Not content with skating ninjas, our friends in Japan rolled various wheeled things down a ski slope and included a play-by-play announcer with high tech graphics!
If anyone wants to fund our Kickstarter campaign, WT wants to roll American wheels down a slope. I’m sure they will go even farther and faster!
Roll Baby Roll!
The beauty of this brings me almost to tears.
This human-powered poor man’s Segway looks good on paper but has a tiny turning radius and will get you tired as hell from pedaling with no way to sit down.
