It's probably what I could do with but would find it a bit cumbersome for discreet street photography!
I wonder how I could attach it to my helicopter ...
Are we going to see you at next years Cape Epic race? This thing should work.
Separating the roles of aiming and holding the camera is an interesting idea, and the resulting videos are impressive. Nevertheless, until I can justify spending triple my current photography investment on a stabilizer, I'll stick with my $30 ghetto GlideCam made from a monopod and a 2ft piece of 2x3in steel tube.

On the other hand, perhaps someone will come out with a more affordable model. Steadicams and the like are fairly old, passive technology that rely on gimbals and a counterweight (and shuffling cameramen) to work. I'm a bit surprised that no one has taken some off the shelf accelerometers and wired them to a fairly basic controller and tied these to two (or three) servo motors; one on each axis you are trying to control motion to.
Doesn't bourbon come in tanker trucks? I believe they also leave in some of the diesel fuel to make it taste better.
