    That's a clever design. Hub-less wheels tend to be really heavy in human-size scales, so I don't know how well this would work "full size", but for a model, that's neat.

    At some point in the future it will probably be mandated that all HBA members get a brain implant that gives them an ice cream headache every time they type "flying car" or "roadable."
