Airtrax, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: AITX), a developer of patented Omni-Directional Technology with military and commercial applications, announced today that its flagship Omni-Directional Vehicle, the SIDEWINDER(TM), was profiled on the Discovery Channel Canada's show the "Daily Planet". The program is television's first daily science show now entering its 13th season. The Airtrax segment called "Funky forklift," aired on December 4, 2007.

Airtrax engineers appeared in the feature to explain the technical aspects of the Company's remarkable Omni-Directional wheel technology and to demonstrate the SIDEWINDER in motion. The Daily Planet describes the Airtrax video on its website as "This omni-directional forklift boasts some impressive moves, thanks to its special set of tires." Co-host and producer of the Daily Planet, Jay Ingram, one of Canada's best-known science popularizers, commented during the segment, "The (Airtrax) vehicles could have a huge impact on transportation, even the construction business."

Peter Greenwood, Vice President of Sales for Airtrax, said, "We are very impressed with the segment that aired on the Discovery Channel, and we were even more pleased by the response we received in Canada. Immediately following the broadcast, we received several inquiries from parties interested in our technology, the SIDEWINDER, and representing Airtrax products in Canada. We are responding to each of these inquiries, and continue to broaden our sales channels across North America."
