Goodyear had this in­ter­est­ing look­ing rub­ber ball on dis­play at Geneva, called the Ea­gle-360. The tyre com­pany is look­ing to the fu­ture with this one, and it is de­signed to be sus­pended be­neath the car by a mag­netic field, us­ing a sim­i­lar con­cept to mag­netic le­vi­ta­tion trains. Goodyear says such a sys­tem would greatly re­duce road noise, and im­prove both ride qual­ity and low speed ma­noeu­vra­bil­ity as the ve­hi­cle would be able to ro­tate 360 de­grees and crab side­ways.
