Goodyear's Spherical Concept Tires Are Like Cheat Codes for Driving

Video: In this version of driving in the future, cars use magnetic levitation and roll around on big spheres. Please put me in cryostasis until this actually exists.

The Goodyear Eagle-360 concept includes a few unusual features, like a spongey substance in the tire grooves that would soften and provide greater traction during rain. Does such a substance exist yet? Who knows! Let the nuts and bolts people sort this out later. Just think: with tires like these, parallel parking will be so easy it will just be called “parking”. Because you can just slide over horizontally. And the car will probably do it for you.

The future needs to hurry up and get here already.
