I'd call it a toy (and a cool one at that)....

What could you do with it? I don't shoot video, but I can't see shooting something with a camera rolling across a table top???

Good investment? Well investment implies you are looking at getting some return. I don't think that would be the case with this. I think in week 2 it would be in the not getting used pile...

If you get it, and like it let everyone know........

i agree, looks like a cool toy.

might be cool for some time lapse stuff as well to get a nice smooth transition in frames.

Looks like fun, but its only investment is in your happiness, and generally i have found that to be a wise investment

I bought one of these sliders instead. Seems to do a bit more.

LOL never seen that before, but man that is quite a wild looking gadget. I guess if <$100 was all your budget allowed and you couldnt build your own slider, sure, reviews look good enough. But I say save a lot more and get a real slider if thats the type of shot you want to get.
