Remember that tortoise a while back that got an office chair wheel for a foot? Apparently, doing the same to a GorillaPod tripod transforms it into a smooth-panning, camera system dubbed the CineSkates.
Cineskates Portable Tripod Dolly, a Kisckstarter project from Austin, Texas, consists of a set of Ballhead X mounts connected to wheels that attach to a GorillaPod tripod enabling fluid, rolling video. When they do hit the market (and they will), Cineskates will run about $US200, though a $US150 donation right now will net you the same. The Cineskate Kickstarter page has already raised over $US55,000 towards its $US20,000 goal, so expect so see a whole bunch of low-angle, rolling shots hitting Youtube soon.
