We received photos and a video from an I4U reader (thanks zenonn) living in Belarus. He attended a demonstration of a new six balloon wheel sporting all-terrain or cross-country vehicle.
The intriguing kinda fun looking vehicle is going on sale in 2005. There are 19 photos in our Gadget Gallery of the still nameless driving machine. Some of the photos show the vehicle driving through water (see photo below) and through ice.
A short video (350KB) shows the Belarus vehicle go over obstacles. The factory making those vehicles said it will have a web site up in February 2005 presenting this vehicle in more detail.
Lets see if this vehicle can compete with the Gibbs Humdinga.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
