432. Bright Idea: Airtrax Omni-directional Wheels August 14, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Product, Transportation, Video.

Thanks to Mark for this 26-second video clip of wheels that can go in any direction without seeming to turn at all. The clip reminds me, bizarrely enough, of moonwalking. The Airtrax website HERE; via Hitslot.

Great for robots, wheelchairs, fork-lifts, and people who can’t parallel park. This wheel is aka the Mecanum Wheel (read more about it here).
