I was sitting out on the deck one day and noticed my neighbor, Erin, bringing food scraps to a long pipe in her backyard. I knew it had to be composting, but I hadn't seen it done in a tube before. Erin is a college student majoring in Environmental Studies so I knew she'd have awesome insight into composting, so I picked her brain for the infos.
First driver-less vehicles, and now airless tires. Innovation definitely gets rid of a lot of things! Unlike most air-less tires that use a solid rubber composite tube, these tires actually do away with the tube itself, relying on a clever mix of design and physics to give you the airless tire! Bridgestone (the force behind these tires) has been experimenting with this concept since 2011, only recently demonstrating how effectively they could be used in cars.
"All of the tubes face out onto shared community space for mingling with other guests, featuring picnic tables, communal cooking spots and a swimming pool. They are also parked right in the middle of some gorgeous desert greenery, surrounded by mountains."
