Michelin just released an awesome new model of tire
This is wheel and tire all at once. Biodegradable, 3D printed, sustainable and incredible.
Did I mention it is AIRLESS?
Yeah, an airless tire, thanks to an alveolar system, you know, just like the networks you got on your lungs.
Meet the Vision:
Michelin isn’t saying when any of these innovations will be implemented, let alone when the Vision might be available for purchase, but Mostapha El-Oulhani, the designer who headed the Vision Project, said the promise of the concept tire is within reach.
“Given how we developed it, the Vision concept tire is a showcase of our expertise as well as a promise of the future,” says El-Oulhani. “We wanted the Vision to be realistic since no purpose is served by designing objects or services that we know pertinently are unrealistic.”
Awesome isn’t it?
