the hankook design innovation project has proposed a series of innovative tire proposals including the ‘mayfloat’ and ‘flexup’. the initiative is the result of a discussion between creative and realistic alternatives to future driving. combining design and technology in relation to the urban landscape, these mind blowing ideas introduce a whole new driving experience.
the 2016 hankook theme ‘connect to the connected world’ predicts mobility changes in future mega cities and presents a vision of future mobility through tires.
the ‘magfloat’ in appearance resembles a skateboard but instead uses a magnetic field extension and rotation principle rather than wheels. this feature allows the user to move freely at a low speed of 20km / h or less.
