Coda Lets You Keep on Driving

Flat tires suck. We all know that. Even for those who are apt at changing their wheels themselves, it's never convenient to have to stop and get out. For those of us who aren't so auto savvy, it's a really miserable experience.

I think everyone who drives will appreciate Coda Development's new self-inflating tires. They ensure you never have to stop and get out to change your wheels. In fact, all you have to do is keep on driving thanks to a peristaltic pump. That's the same kind of contraption used to get the fluid moving in a hospital IV.

It sounds really fancy, the it's actually expected to cheap and more reliable than existing tech. Coda will be debuting the system in April at the 2008 SAE World Congress.
