I had one of those wheels on my bike many years ago but in those days it was called buckled.

Seriously - it looks an interesting idea.

Yes, just think of all those perfectly good buckled wheels that have been thrown away!

Can't get my head round the principle yet. Will read some more!

It was an accidental discovery, but I think it is just brilliant. Probably faster on a race track, more stable on slippery surfaces, even perhaps amphibious with a bit more tweaking :-))

An amphibious car with properly designed wheels-n-tyres could virtually skate across water, as long as it was nice and calm! Maybe Mr Clarkson could be encouraged to make a prototype :-))

In the expectation that he test drives it and it sinks!

Square? not by my definition!

"A square has equal sides and every angle is a right angle (90°)

Also opposite sides are parallel."

It's not a square at all. It is curved throughout its circumference, and as far as I can see it seems like a brilliant innovation.

Apparently it is formed around a cubed center, which is why it has been described as round.

A bit like Poetic License?
