The soloshot is not that new,it's been around for a while now.
It was invented in Australia about 12+ years ago and the concept was sold to an American company 10 years ago.
The only new part of it is the camera controler has seen some more recent development.
It's an awesome gadget though,I would like to have one.
The new Lilly quad takes it that one leap further though.I would like one of them too.
