Ah, yes, the triangular wheel, it eliminated one of the bumps of the square wheel.
Thor must know all the angles.
“The 4-sided square wheel and the 3-sided triangle wheel are older experimental models. But those are nothing special. You should see the 2-sided one!”
Triumph TR7, the shape of things to come.
Transportation has often put form over function.
I’ll wait until they come out with a little dodecahedron coupe.
I think that he should have stayed with the circle.
With the added bonus, they won’t roll away…….
They are both a little rough around the edges.
Coming soon; The Tesseract model!
The 3 sided model was obviously the inspiration for the Wankel motor …
These must be the all terrain models. Round is for roads only.
I’m amused by the car dealership commercials nowadays, “Come on down. You used car will never be worth more than it is today.” That’s true and there is comfort in that statement providing you are not buying another car.
So he’s selling the Edsels of the BC era?
Little known fact on the development of wheel.They experimented with a five-side-wheel, which was better. But, due to budget cuts, people where laid of, and a small crew developed the one-sided-wheel. So, we have “wheel” thanks to staff reductions!
I’m waiting for the nft.
I prefer the dodecahedra sided wheel.
I have indeed noticed that some mistakes are so bad that they are valuable both as object lessons and modern art. If you weld enough trash together and paint it purple and silver, you can probably sell it.
Both salesmanship and wheel design have (hopefully) improved.
Funny thing, I see kids now rolling around on variations of BC’s wheel invention. I’m sure his patent has expired or his wealth would be unrivaled.
Not much on traveling very far but excellent for parking on steep hills.
I’m holding out for the octagonal wheels
Antiques ….wheeling and dealing….
I don’t know about the triangle shaped ones, but the square ones were tried not too long ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIN8Q_4iaxU
The used car market being what it is today …
Weight loss devices…
And it was only driven by a little old lady on Sundays.
Humm. Is this the real beginning of “Crypto Currency”?
If a wheel is not slipping, the bottom is not in motion relative to the road.
Ride it around enough and it will be round!
Special sale for kindergarten teachers…
It probably already is worth nothing….
The earlier model was imported from the Egyptians.
The real museum piece is the one wth two axles on the same wheel tandem(it’s a training wheel)
Must be something defining the difference between value and worth.
