This is where I first saw it too. It t'was EPIC. Awesome that the military is using it...

I'm wondering why they haven't come to market... I have a feeling tire companies would LOSE money if they started selling these puppies. Amazing...

I don't see why you would need to constantly adjust the pressure. That's the whole point... You wouldn't need to.
