Kinda scary looking to me...
As interesting as it looks, they weren't really reefing on the tires too hard...What about lateral forces acting on them, say, if you were in a skid (or drifting)?

According to an article in the NY Times a few weeks back, the no-pressure tire is several years (10?) away from the market. Lots of development yet to be done, but Michelin and others are convinced it's the way that tires/wheels will go.

Another article indicated that these tires with be introduced to low speed applications initially and then as the technology improves, to ATV's and industrial applications with the passenger car market coming last.
