  Is this actually real? It seems awesome, but the net has seen a lot of
awesome ideas like this that never really materialized. (Obviously they
do have a working prototype judging from the photos, but mass-producing
the real thing for $25 is another matter.) Anyone knows what their
schedule is? (Will this be available next week/month/year?)
