The Spherical-wheeled motorcycle

It's not unusual anymore when the progress of a technology raises many unique innovations and strange that you never even thought before.
A group of students from the Charles W Davidson College Of Engineering at San Jose State University are working on an omnidirectional, self-balancing SDS electric motorcycle. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1AEkYtp)
One is the work of a group of students from San Jose State University that make wheel technology with a rounded shape, replacing the conventional wheel. The project they call the Spherical Drive electric motorcycle.

Its spherical wheel is composed of carbon fiber and fiberglass wrapped with rubber coating industry. As a driver, this motorcycle utilize the frictional forces generated by three electric motors are available to him.
The initial aim is to get the vehicle stable and in control at speeds up to about 10 mph but the designers say that, in theory at least, it could zoom up to 60 mph. (Picture from: http://bit.ly/1AEkYtp)
However, not without obstacles, this spherical wheel technology is recognized by its creator is still problematic in the stability and balancing. Therefore, now the students are still developing gyro-accelerometer technology has a computerized ability to balance and move this concept motorcycle.

We awaited the results later. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | GIZMAG]
