Maybe they wanted to show off that their fake device can handle FRC.
Absolutely.

If this is an elaborate scam!! I am sold, but how do they get my money? Who is going to buy this without independent reviews.

You do have to admit they do CGI very well for a bunch of scammers. If it is a scam. They need to be selling the CGI or stop motion...well done!

It is very obvious that the pieces are 3D projected and not real. Those pieces have been generated by a computer and are not actual pieces. But to be honest, the tech to do something like that doesn't seem too difficult. But if the point of the video was to show a "actual working product" then … yes for sure it is not being honest.

OK … now this looks very real unlike the other video. But again … this really does not seem like a big deal to make … the technology to make it happen is there and the only thing stopping such a product being made it enough demand for it. At $1600 … I doubt I would buy it … at $500 I probably would!
