Airless Tyres!

Now this idea looks really cool!  Coming from someone who works in a bike shop where nearly half of every day is spent changing busted inner tubes, I am eagerly awaiting to see if this becomes a reality.  Apparently it was developed by Michelin quite a while ago but got put on the back burner till now.  Know as the ‘Tweel’, a rival company called ‘Resilient Technologies’  is now developing prototypes for the US military.  Read more about it on Design Boom.
