Although the airless tire isn't something new, Goodyear Spring Tire's is rather impressive. Designed for NASA, it looks like a traditional tire that has been wrapped in chainmail, unlike the airless army tires that resemble bubble-wrapped craters.

Constructed out of 800 load bearing springs, the Goodyear Spring Tire can carry heavy vehicles over long distances. A winner at the 44th Annual R&D 100 Awards, this puncture-proof tire was designed for use on the Moon.
