A French company by the name of Production Functional Factory is developing an extraordinarily innovative yet surprisingly simple compressed air system that generates its energy from the spinning of bicycles' front wheels.

Dubbed the Bimp Air, this particular compressed air system makes use of a front hum generator, a small compressor and a canister of compressed air. This setup allows for the spinning of the wheels -- while riding -- to result in the canister being filled with up to 11 liters of compressed air. This compressed air is then ready and available to use if you run into a situation where your tire is running low on air.

The Bimp Air system is a wonderfully innovative system that shows the convenience that can be enjoyed from smart engineering.
