Self-Sealing Tube For Quick Work Of Flats

So here’s an interesting piece of bike tech. Michelin cam out with a self sealing tube. I am told that this is nothing new in the bike world. What is new is that instead of pressure going outward instead it is pushing inward causing the hole to seal up quicker since the rubber pinches in on itself. Is this the next evolutionary leap in bike tube technology? What do you think?
