This futuristic-looking vehicle is powered by a single rear wheel that is a complex treaded ball, referred to by its makers as a “sphere drive.” The body is engineered with a controllable joint that allows the Terrainiac to pivot or twist like a human torso. The results are radical turns at high speeds as its high-torque electric motor drives the vehicle over practically any sort of terrain. The hollow sphere drive helps provided buoyancy and locomotion when the vehicle takes to the water. “The Terrainiac is truly all-terrain, reaching speeds up to 10 miles per hour on asphalt, dirt, grass, sand and water,” Kerry Vance at GolinHarris told TDmonthly. Launch date: Summer 2007.
