Not Just another Robot Arm on Kickstarter

Another open source robot arm has cropped up on Kickstarter, It seems to have 6 DoF which is nice.  Surprisingly it uses brushless DC motors and Hypocycloidal gearboxes that they claim are backdriveable.  This is a serious step up from the hobby servos many arms use but there are lots of tradeoffs with hypocycloids which need to be overcome.   The motion looks a bit jerky right now as well, so I suspect some more work needs to be done either on software or hardware.  All said though, the ambitiousness of the design and price point has me intrigued.
