The latest crazy concept release from the Geneva Motor Show isn’t a car, it’s the Goodyear Eagle 360 Urban Spherical Tire. The medicine ball-sized tire is made with a 3D-printed bionic skin made of super-elastic polymer and is suspended from the car using magnetic fields. It also connects to infrastructure, other vehicles, traffic networks and the environment to gather information in real-time, which is then processed by the artificial intelligence in the tire to determine course of action. It can morph to add dimples for bad driving conditions. It can rotate for on-the-go self-healing purposes. It can even sense when it needs maintenance and tell the autonomous car to take it to a service center. Will they be able to attach to normal cars? Will they ever see production? Will they work? The answers to all those questions are probably “not in our lifetimes,” but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a fleet of vehicles on these tires in the next big science fiction blockbuster.

We’re not sure when the whole carry your wallet in your back pocket thing started, but we’re not big fans. Not only does it make it easier for pickpockets to swipe your cards and cash, but sitting on a wallet all day isn’t exactly what we’d call “comfortable.” That’s why we endorse the front-pocket wallet, and few versions are smarter and sleeker than the Wally Bifold. The Wally Bifold is a wallet distilled to the essentials. By eliminating unnecessary bulk, Distil Union crafted the Wally Bifold to hold as much as your standard bifold—up to 12 cards and 30 bills—but in a package that slips easily into the front pocket of your jeans.
