    That's cool. Spent many a day on a work boat dodging loads from a crane.

    It's articulate and speaks well for Enginerdingness! Pretty Kool mechanisms. Looks like a dock to ship system in the end but in beginning as the crane appears dynamic first 7 seconds (camera 1) and not in later 7sec of frames (camera 2). Even though it's sped up the cable drives on the jib and Z axis must be some kind of Laser guided control system, maybe a fluid balancing system to be agile enough especially if both units are moving. Would like to know more, as it doesn't look like a hoax, but an odd compilation.

    Where did you find this Jon?

    Thats pretty amazing! I would like to see that in normal time, and in different sea states. I wonder where/what the limits of it are?
