Omni-Directional Car Wheels

Inventor William Liddiard spent years creating a set of omni-directional wheels that can be fitted onto any car, enabling it to move in any direction and spin 360°, making parallel parking a breeze. "Unlike other omni-capable wheels, my wheels do not require the vehicle to be built around them. This is a world first bolt-on application for anything with wheels. They are stronger, faster, and more accurately controlled than prior art. They can take a beating. The tires can have the same build characteristics (siping, grooves, rubber compounds etc.) as regular tires. Now you can drive in all directions, and turn on the spot, when needed," said Liddiard.

Penn State and US Navy researchers are developing a supersonic submarine using a technique called supercavitation, or in other words, enveloping a submerged vessel inside an air bubble to lessen water drag. Theoretically, a supercavitating vessel could hit 3,600mph underwater, enabling one to travel from Beijing, China to San Francisco in just 100-minutes. "Basically supercavitation is used to significantly reduce drag and increase the speed of bodies in water. However, sometimes these bodies can get locked into a pulsating mode," said Grant M. Skidmore, recent Penn State Ph.D. recipient in aerospace engineering. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.
