Until the display it's lateral performance this wheel is useless. Plus the cost of manufacture will be so ridiculously high that it'll never see the light of day. Unless every single manufacturer decides to use these as stock tires they will have to be put together by hand.

HAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHA Good luck driving those on any normal road in the united states. He talks about all the accidents from tires, well I don't think those mechanical debacles will make the road any safer. I think simplistic is maybe a better technology.

I still say, having zero lateral flexibility would likely cause traction problems. So no flat tires again but tons more sliding and flipping. But I'm no engineer so I'm just blindly assuming.

Bridgestone.
They unveiled a similar concept.
