Tire Pressure? There’s an App for That!

I’ve extolled the importance of checking your tire pressure before. Well, thanks to a new crowdfunded invention, monitoring your pressure could get a lot easier. It’s called Fobo Tire, and it’s a sensor that constantly monitors your tire pressure, sending that information to your smartphone or in-car receiver.

The inventors promise it’s intuitive and easy to use:

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) – and install FOBO Tire in less than 5 minutes without the need for professional help. Just follow the FOBO Tire app’s simple on-screen instructions. You do not need to change or modify your tire’s existing pressure valve. Just screw on the FOBO Tire sensors and you are good to go.

When you purchase a set, you’ll receive four tire sensors, one in-car unit, and the app. Batteries included. The estimated delivery is right around the corner, in November.

These aren’t just for cars either. There’s also a version called FOBO Bike that promises to work on motorcycles and bicycles.

You can learn more about it on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo. What do you think? Are you interested?
