Your regular old car's wheels can probably only go in a finite number of directions. One crafty YouTuber took it upon himself to create a set of wheels that would allow his trusty Toyota Echo to handle moving around in just about any direction you can think of. The result looks pretty ridiculous, but also totally awesome.

William's "Liddiard Wheels" are powered by 24,000 pounds of torque to the wheels, allowing for some ridiculous moves. You can bolt them on to any vehicle if your own car needs an upgrade for some reason, and they'll definitely be the catalyst for some insane conversations in the future.

Liddiard is looking to get some exposure for this interesting invention, and it looks like he's going to get it. But would this be something drivers would actually be able to utilize? Check out the wheels in action for yourself in the video below.
