Say more: the system is wired.
The positive things are:
it can run cine lenses
and, probably, the lowest price.
The target group is indie and low budget filmmakers, TV Ops, who making music video, football competitions broadcasting, commercials etc.
Our goal and fun is to hit unusual goal. Up to now we tried to produce reliable device for crazy low price. The next step is to build radio-link for this system.
The cheapest concept is almost done and ready to meet first buyers as we are ready to meet first " tomatoes".
We intend to come up with some unusual and higher priced products for Pros.

The next step is radio-link and new motor.

We are about to approach 700 $ for wired system and 950 $ for radio-controlled one.
There can be some corrections, but very small.

I think you're on the right track. Obviously you're working on the noise and size of the motor.
I think the DSLR and light camera systems as well as light camera jibs would love a dependable system for $700.
Think of schools too. Lots of colleges have departments and gear but no way to manage Follow Focus.
Beware, I'd say those are also the markets that are rough on gear so make it durable.

1. We have some devices ready for sale, 700$ + shipping.
2. Radio controlled system is to be ready by December.
3. New low-noise motor is under R&D (we desperately trying to come up with prototype ready to February).
4. BVFF presentation in St. Petersburg went very productive: good critics, new ideas, few compliments. (Someone shoot one dialogue with his mobile phone).
Here is our fresh official site.
With the best regards -
