Wheels That Convert to Tank Treads

Wheels are great but they can’t go everywhere (simmer down dude in the Jeep, yes you’re awesome, your CJ can go everywhere, winch it up big boy). Sometimes you need something tougher- like tank treads. As the slightly overdramatic after a minute above video demonstrates, it’s possible to make a wheel that morphs into a tread with ease. Ideal for robots and wheelchairs. Ok, maybe Jeeps too.
