Interesting airless tire system, using internal pneumatic shock absorbers for suspension and decoupling the wheel between lateral and vertical forces

elastomer tire, but kinda heavy/friction/slow, and if you bust a spoke (which seems to happen a fair bit with these), you gotta cut the tire off to get at the spokes...

Interesting concept for a folding wheel, using segmentation and lateral folding. Does this allow conversion between skinny tall wheels and short fat wheels (pseudo-fatbike wheel alternative?)

But don't most shape memory alloys (nickel titanium based) have a critical temperature where they change memory?

Welcome to Michelin Tweel Technologies News
So they are getting serious about tweel production, for agricultural and construction, but not for trucking or cars though (probably has something to do with reduced efficiency due to rolling resistance?)

Kinda reminds me of moon rover tires. Wonder what the rolling resistance is though...

New version of the old lunar rover tires for much higher loads and longevity. Potential earthbound applications as well (possible competitor to the Tweel?)
