Omni-directional wheel

Hi,

I saw this video on Hackaday and liked it a lot, so I decided to include it here. As other ‘Time Out’ posts, it has nothing to do with FPGAs whatsoever.

The video shows up the operation of the omni-directional wheel, which looks quite cool. I have one comment to make, but it will be after the video, in order to avoid a spoiler.

So, after I saw the video I really remained asking myself if the tyre is not damaged when used for side to side moving. Actually I am not sure that a wheel can be flexible enough to do the trick. But, what do I know about tyres after all?
