The versatility combined with the vehicle’s overt cool factor and the ability to use it in different environments is this vehicle’s strong points.

The car front is omni-directional, so the sphere can roll to any direction, where as the rear provides more stability and braking. If the driver wants, it can turn 360º on a dime. The sphere is controlled by an independent engine connected to an intelligent system that recognizes every movement.
