It rolls! It floats! It flies! It’s MUWA!

It rolls! It floats! It flies! It’s MUWA!

File this under “why didn’t I think of that?”! The University of Tokyo’s Multi-field Universal Wheel for Air-land vehicle (MUWA)  uses a foam wheel to balance sideways like a wheel and roll along the ground as well as land on water. Its four, independently controlled variable pitch props can direct thrust in two different directions, forcing MUWA to “stand up” to a vertical position from the ground. Check out the video!
