Hello
It is a motorized skate board. It runs via remote held by the operator. Quite a fancy to see it run but a little uncertain for uneven surfaces.

That's a nice tidy bit of work, with the stepoff. Very neat. Must be just as difficult to think 'outside the box' as it is with the Handsfree.

Nice work.

Reminds me of Ted Churchill, who used to operate Steadicam wearing rollerskates. The 4-wheeled variety. I believe in the book " LightYears", there is an accounting of Ted showing up to shoot a live concert by wheeling through the crowd up to the stage in skates.

[url="http://www.steadicam.ca/mainfile/article/churchill/tedbook/tedbook.html#3.%20Arrival""]The Steadicam Operator's Manual of Style[/url] has a photo of Ted's gear in a pile- including a rollerskate.

Yipes.
