Zero Impact Vehicle Incorporates Innovative Two Wheel Green Design for Efficient City Use

The two-seater ZIV or Zero Impact Vehicle concept has been designed to offer a greener life style for busy urban environment by using recycled or reclaimed materials only. This futuristic vehicle is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell that generates water only as the final mechanical waste that can be collected in a holding tank for later use. The motionless rim design makes the vehicle unique where the tire travels around the rim by utilizing maglev train like magnets that controls all propulsion and braking functions. Being placed right under the time, the levitation magnets act as shock absorbers too. Balance on rough terrain is achieved through more powers on the magnets by the fuel cell and zero radius turning can be done with ZIV because of its two tires design, making it easier to park and navigate on busy city streets.

Sucks… How do you brake without making the hull spin around? Try taking a wheelchair, pushing it backwards with your feet and stopping the movement of the wheels with your hands. yup, you fall over.
