Tire company Goodyear has developed a concept tire that literally brings driving to life. The tire, which was introduced at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, is named Oxygene. It features an open structure and living moss growing within the sidewall. The design and structure of the tire allows the tread to absorb and circulate moisture. Furthermore, the moss uses this moisture to grow, absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing oxygen via photosynthesis. Goodyear estimates that if every car in a city the size of Paris carried the sidewalls, more than 4,000 tons of carbon dioxide would be absorbed by the tires every year.
