Radical Peugeot 360 car rides on spheres instead of wheels

Here’s a extraordinary concept: a car without wheels, instead using three spheres to move in any direction. Designer Andrei França created the Peugeot 360 with an electric motor driving each sphere, using a system of pulleys coordinated by an on-board computer to keep things from going out of control.

It’s a fanciful design that might be more practical when fly-by-wire computerized drivers take over a few decades from now. While it’s not as crazy as the two other Peugeot-themed fantasy designs we’ve shown you, it's still slightly far-fetched. That said, this 360-degree steering would sure make it easy to do some sideways parallel parking.
