I’m always having to move my coffee around and, you know, pick up the coaster and move it, and I said, “Ah, I wish we had a coaster that could just roll with me, you know, a rolling coaster, roller coaster – that’s a great idea.” I actually had a buddy who has a 3D printer, so we started using AutoCAD as amateurs, just started making parts and trying to do our own wheel, wheel ball bearings, and doing everything ourselves, but you know, you can only take it so far, just kind of doing it casually. So, that’s when I decided to kind of take it to the next step and really, you know, just started searching around. I ended up finding these two guys over in Cambridge, and I’ve been working with them on the prototypes, and up till now, and it’s been great. Dave, I got you on the solo layout on video, but do you mind showing us your product? I hope you have it there. There it is, absolutely – Roll Across.
