On The Run

For some reason sci-fi modellers often depict future transport as having legs. This is strange because wheels are obviously more efficient and mechanically simpler to design. Walking vehicles also require advanced stabilisation and control technology. Why would society abandon the wheel? Would it eventually mean the end of The Lego Car Blog? How would the Elves win their Smarties?

Perhaps one area where walking machines might make sense would be in a form of racing, such as BobDeQuatre’s Running Flamingo. As we noted earlier in the week, racing competitions often arbitrarily change their rules, so why not ban wheels? BobDeQuatre has created the World Running League for exactly this sort of motor sport.
