Universal rolling platform. If you turn the whole assemblage upside down and fix the flat section onto the two rolling gears, then you have a plane which could in theory move in any direction. Useful in immersive 3D/VR gaming where you would need an enclosed surface with a full range of directional movement.

Best use: extracting the souls of Justin Bieber's fans; it's not like they're using them.
