Airless Tires Tweel

I saw the photos of this technology of tires in couple years ago but I still don’t see it on the roads, just wondering whether it is popular in other countries. This is an airless tire “Tweel” from Michelin, designed by Segway; the design looks cool.

The heart of Tweel innovation is its deceptively simple looking hub and spoke design that replaces the need for air pressure while delivering performance previously only available from pneumatic tires.

It was said that Tweel performance levels beyond those possible with conventional pneumatic technology. I would say the inventor Dean Kamen who came out this idea is brilliant. Can’t imagine how cool is my car if it is fit with these tires.
