Australian inventor Phillip James was inspired by three-wheeled vehicles capable of tilting to provide incredible almost motorcycle-like handling in an enclosed vehicle. He began work on his Commuter Tilting Vehicle Concept that breaks away from the common form of tilters by placing two wheels up front and one in the rear. The two front wheels steer by the angle of their tilt, which depending on the degree create a curved path suitable for the vehicle to follow at any particular speed. As apparent in videos the inventor has posted on his site, the Commuter Tilting Vehicle Concept appears as easy to drive as a four-wheel car and incredibly stable in relatively high-speed cornering. Backyard inventors who seem ever able to surprise with their creativity and ingenuity in the absence of bureaucracies and bean counters always impress us.
