1. Liddiard Wheel Car
Forget the hassle of parallel parking, and say hello to cars with Liddiard Wheels. Invented by William Liddiard, this set of omni-directional wheels can be bolted onto any car, enabling it to move in any direction, spin 360° and slide into a parking space with ease. “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.
