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.
In case you do not know Belarus, visit the great CIA World Fact Book.
