Here's a link to an interesting new portable dolly from Matthews that looks like part dolly and almost rickshaw. There's also a photo in the gallery of someone operating an AR from it as well.
Obviously they're playing on the whole RED phenomena with it and of course it has to be red. Regardless, it's worth a look as a potential Steadicam platform:

This was brough up here :http://www.steadicamforum.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=7968

Great looking dolly. You can lock the wheels and the CG is super low. I'm looking forward to a rental house getting one here in NY to check out. Looks like another great tool.

Hi Robert,

That " someone with an AR riding " is the legendary Jeff Mart . He has always been a big advocate
of the rickshaw . Great operator as well

Thanks for the operator ID !

Sorry for posting something already covered in another topic; I had not seen it posted as "RED Dolly". Moderators feel free to move or delete as you see fit.
