Spheres, also known as spherical wheels, are the latest technology to roll off the assembly line in the U.S. The technology is the result of years of efforts by the National Center for Materials Research (NCMR) in Gaithersburg, Maryland, to produce a vehicle that can rotate around the axis of its own axis.
The wheel can be used on a car or truck, but it’s also possible to roll on a city street or on the ocean.
“It’s a really interesting new technology, and it’s exciting to see how quickly we can produce it,” NCCR’s Dr. William Kline said in a statement.
“We’ve been working on spherical wheels for more than 20 years and have a great team of people at the NCCM.
We’re very excited about the future of this technology.”
Spheres have been used in some form on the road since the 1950s, but they’ve never been as versatile and affordable as they are today.
A sphere with a diameter of about a quarter of an inch can roll along at 40 miles per hour, while a sphere that’s a half-inch across can roll at 30 mph.
The new wheel, developed by NCCMR, uses a rotating cylinder made from plastic that’s mounted in the spokes.
The spokes are made of polypropylene.
NCCRT’s goal is to make the spheres into affordable, lightweight, lightweight-weight products, and they’re expected to be available by 2020.
Spheres can be built in any shape and size, but the most common ones are usually made from steel, but NCC RT is developing an aluminum-carbon composite that can be made from polycarbonate and then extruded.
The company is aiming to produce spheres in several sizes, from 1 to 20 inches in diameter, with different shapes and colors, and then to mass produce them in bulk for retail use.
For example, NCCRM is planning to roll 1,000 spheres into a cube that will retail for $4,000.
Narrowing the sphere wheel to a single diameter makes it much more affordable, since it allows for smaller spheres and larger wheels to be produced.
“The goal is that the size of the sphere will be much smaller than the size that would normally be needed for a vehicle, and that the sphere can be easily scaled up,” said Kline, who is also a professor at the University of Virginia’s College of Engineering.
The NCC MR has worked with a number of companies to make spheres, including car companies, to create their own wheels and wheels made from plastics.
The wheels can be bought from a variety of sources, including companies such as General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler.
“These are products that have been in the works for a very long time,” Kline told Business Insider.
“And the way they’ve been developed is incredibly innovative.
We’ve been able to go to different suppliers and see what they can do.”
The NRCM said it has already started manufacturing spheres for the public market, and NCC-MR plans to introduce them to the public in the next few months.
“Spheres have the potential to have a major impact on the transportation industry, and we look forward to helping shape the future,” Klin said.
