    Taxicab with no-spin hubcapsI'm sure some of you have seen the hubcaps that spin even when the car isn't moving. Well being the overly complicated person that I am, I said to my bro one time (as well as to others afterward) wouldn't it be nifty if they made hub caps that spun backwards at the perfect RPM to velocity ratio to make it look like the car wasn't moving. Well apparenlty this almost beats out that idea. They have hubcaps with what I assume are ball bearings and weights so that the are mostly stationary, though I understand they sway a little bit. I guess my absolutely useless invention is still safe to be cooked up. From engadget
