I just ran across this on the web - and NO, I am not associated with this product in any way.

With that being said, it does look like an interesting concept and product for automatically taking a large number of individual images to be stitched together in to a very high resolution panorama.

I have been considering a very specific wide angle lens for the type of panos I want to do, however this would put a very different twist on it and move me on to a much different tangent. Rather than a 12-24 zoom wide angle lens, I might consider a limited 70 prime with a device like this.

This takes the concept of a pano head to another dimension.

I have no way of knowing what they are doing exactly, however it appears that you get to keep the beta units. $279 is in the ball park for pano heads, so its not too bad. If it were pure software, their cost would be minimial, but in producing hardware they are probably trying to cover costs and hold down demand. If you give something away, a lot of people will just say yes and never use it. If you have to pay for something, then you will probably use it and remove the people who would never use it, but would like to have it.

Just some thoughts...
