Hemispherical Omnidirectional Gimbaled (HOG) Wheel = FAST Robots!

This invention uses my favorite electromechanical component, the BLDC motor, Brushless Direct Current Motor. The motor is attached to a hemispherical wheel, this wheel's contact with the ground both propels and steers the vehicle.

The point is , the motor is a Airplane motor and it moves the car across the ground as fast as an airplane propeller rotates! I saw three or four websites embed this video and they just said "It's cool" but I wanna tell you what you'll see....IT'S Fast!
