Yeah. It has a lot of potential. At share we had a workshop and it was 
demo'd there. Very responsive, and a lot of possibilities.. the lack of 
pressure / velocity information is kind of a letdown as is the 
pricetag..., but otherwise it was very very impressive.

I think we are going to try to put the video online from the workshop. 
Ill be happy to post a link to the video when we do.
