Certainly contrived, but fun thinking. Two of those wheels must be holonomic to slide sideways!

    Heck yeah, all it takes is switching the data from AT&T to Verizon. Easiest upgrade ever!

    Oops, looks like a no-go.

    No one should attempt to recreate or re-enact the activity shown.

  • But can it do a figure 8?

    On a tangential note, did anyone see the news about China's elevated bus? It seems the whole thing might have been a scam. If so, that's unfortunate. It seemed a neat way to share the road (as the totally real video above also shows).

    Verizon I can tolerate, but DEATH before Time Warner, currently masquerading as Spectrum. NEVER again, those gangsters!
