The squared wheel is a beautiful example of mathematical thinking: thinking out-of-the-box, generating alternatives and cutting one's way through the jungle. It is also a motivator to think deeply about a problem, even if it seems obvious.
If you have asked yourself the question: "Are there more wheel configurations possible than just the circle and the square?" then, I suppose, you got what it takes. ;-)
Have a look at the Wolfram demo 'Roads and Wheels'.
