Omni-directional forklift



This forklift uses the same technology you've seen used in the robot with omni-directional wheels. As somebody pointed out in the comments, these wheels are called mecanum wheels and have been around since '73 and are used by the US military for different utility vehicles that operate on-board aircraft carriers where movement space is limited. Very interesting!
