At this year's Geneva Motor Show, Goodyear introduced a revolutionary new product called the Eagle-360. While tires have changed relatively little over the years, this new product represents the future of tech-integrated tires.

The Eagle-360 is a spherical tire that is designed for the self-driving cars of the future. The tire features a unique, ball-shaped design that allows the car to move in all directions. This not only improves the car’s maneuverability, but it also improves passenger comfort. In addition to the unique shape, the tires also feature magnetic technology that allows the tires to communicate with the vehicle about information such as road conditions.

While the technology is still in the early stages, the Eagle-360 demonstrates how tires may change with the advent of the self-driving car.
