Car That Can Park Anywhere

Parking just got a whole lot easier.

An impressive video showcases an amazing set of wheels that enables all vehicles to move in all directions and to rotate on the spot 360 degrees.

English Inventor Matthew Liddiard can be seeing trying out the tyres on his Toyota Echo - and soon we'll all be after some.

The car moves almost mesmerisingly from side to side as well as on the spot with an effortless elegance. The tyres roll perpendicular to the vehicle's body instead of parallel as the car appears to almost glide. The Londoner stresses that these omni-capable wheels are a world first bolt-on application which are very easy to use and require no modifications.

He adds that they're designed to be used in all weather and road conditions. 'They are stronger, faster, and more accurately controlled than prior art. They can take a beating,' he said.

Appropriately called Liddiard wheels, they are powered by 24,000 pounds of torque applied directly to the wheels which gives them incredible precision.

Speed can also be adjusted be changing up the gearing ratios and with a speed controller.

Liddiard hopes to soon sell the invention to a large company like Goodyear or Honda.
