DIY Rotational Skater Dolly

I'm hoping to get feedback on what the forum thinks of my DIY skater dolly?

That looks pretty cool. One of the things that I see right away is that its going to a very specific usage. You're really going to want to use something like that on very smooth surfaces, much as your pool table demo suggests. I think one reason that people aren't writing in a multitude of responses may be that the concept is very similar to the tripod dolly's that are out there. Looks like a solid unit though.
