I have used this prototype, I'm pretty impressed so far with the operation. More testing is in order soon to develop some feedback.

Hi All,

So, I pride myself on following through on a project. That said, I didn't realize how BIG the project really was. But - because everybody has been so encouraging about this concept, I've pushed it through to _almost_ being a real live product!

You can see an updated video about it here: http://www.smobot.com/

A handful of generous prototype testers from Texas were involved on this development project, and at least one of them I met here. Thanks again for the support!

To try to get over the finish line to a real product, I'm hosting a kickstarter campaign which starts onWednesday March 8th, at 12PM. I'm hoping you guys will check it out, and see what your encouragement and interest have produced.

Kind regards,
Eric

I remember seeing this long ago. Glad to see it is still active.
I second that Indiegogo or Kickstarter might help you get across the finish line at a lower per unit cost. Very Cool!!
