Edgar F. Wittmack, whose retro-futuristic oil paintings graced the covers of most issues of Popular Science throughout The Great Depression, is best known for his portrayal of whimsical inventions. In real life, this orange “dynasphere”—shown being driven by two men on a clear and sunny day—existed only as a clunky iron prototype. Its inventor claimed that the giant motorized wheel would easily replace other automobiles as the best choice for high-speed transportation.
