Students from San Jose State University are making Batman’s Batcycle a reality. The motorcycle features a “spherical drive system” that functions in much the same way as Batmans’ Gotham ride. Though you may not be able to find spherical wheels like this when looking for tires in La Crescenta now, this could be a reality in the future.
The Batcycle offers incredible maneuverability, allowing for abrupt stops and 90 degree angle turns. In fact, the bike these students are developing would allow for 360 degree rotation in any direction. The bike runs on three electric motors and is made entirely out of carbon fiber and rubber.
Check out the Hollywood inspiration for the bike in this clip:
