OWI is releasing a new toy soon: the Air Power Racer. This easy-to-build product runs on air pressure alone. No battery! No motor!

Pump the robot full of air, and watch it go! The air chamber is made from a plastic bottle. If the bottle is pumped with too much air, a safety valve will automatically open to bleed off the excess.

According to OWI, the racer has travelled up to 50 meters in 35 seconds. This kit is a great way for kids to learn about the power of air pressure and teaches basic building skills.

The Air Power Racer is expected to be released in late April and will sell for $29.95.
