In this version of driving in the future, cars use magnetic levitation and roll around on big spheres. Please put me in cryostasis until this actually exists.
In the world of electric cars, efficiency is king — wasted energy is just more miles you can't travel. While regenerative braking is old news, regenerative tires that use heat and vibration to recharge the battery would be something completely new.
This ain't no blimp. The first new dirigible in nearly a half century to bear the the iconic Goodyear logo is actually a rigid airship—a safer, more efficient, far less explodey form of air travel than conventional blimps.
Goodyear's unnamed concept builds on a standard SUV tire with a large central groove to improve rolling resistance by having a reduced contact patch with the road. But as you can see from the tread, this is strictly a concept with no intention of being put into production. Yet.
The current Goodyear Blimps have been watching NFL games from the sky since 1969, and now, just like a player who's been on the receiving end of too many bad tackles, it's time to retire in favor of something younger and faster. So taking the place of the aging GZ-20 blimps are three new Zeppelin NTs, which you can…
There's a long list of reasons why you should keep your vehicle's tires properly inflated—from better mileage to safer handling. Goodyear has made this motorist's chore extra easy with its new Air Maintenance Technology system, which automatically keeps a tire at the proper PSI using a self-contained passive pump.
You find yourself held under "house arrest" in a remote jungle region of Indonesia, sometime in the late 1950s. You may have your suit, fedora and at least one halfway decent tie, but the chances of getting back to the US of A seem slim. The CIA thinks you're not so dispensable, so spytechs—with the help of the always…
Goodyear, that name you're accustomed to seeing on tires, has decided to jump into the GPS game, sticking its familiar brand name onto navigation devices. Hey, they have something to do with cars, don't they? The company has pulled a Garmin on us, brand spamming with an entire product line of eight different GPS units…
Vroom. NASCAR and Goodyear have teamed up to mark all Goodyear Eagle tires with RFID tags. Pit crews, and potentially score-keepers, can read the tags as the cars come around the track or take pit stops. In the ultimate in PR-douchery, however, we get this sort of explanation from the tag manufacturer:
