Boda Jib by Cinetech?

I saw some news reports on this that linked to a Kickstarter crowd funding thing, but the Kickstarter part was cancelled.

However this Boda jib is the most righteous jib I have ever seen. I do have the Advanta-Jib which in itself is really nice, but weight is the issue with checked baggage. The center and end castings on the Advanta-Jib are aluminum but a bit heavy. Additionally, it does take some time to put it all together. The hydraulic title feature is nice, but I have been waiting for a carbon fiber jib to come out that is really fast to assemble, adjust it's length, and would handle the weight of a rigged Red style camera without breaking the bank like the admittedly nice Libec jibs.

It seems that the existing photos are showing a lot of slightly different prototypes, with the video showing a side mounted end piece, and others showing a centrally mounted end piece. Some center pivot photos show a side mount only, while others show a centered U channel.

I am trying to get a handle on if the Boda Jib will be produced or not, built I thought I would broach the product and topic because, well, I want!, lol.
