the reason there's no updates and some of the links are dead, is because he sold his design to a major company that will have these in production soon, if not already. he was ordered to cease and desist all futher public material as per the contract. he's not part of Lado, but I got the impression from him, that Robart had something to do with it, since they supplied the gear for him to redesign.
perhaps I'll get in contact with him and ask. LOL.
