Just stumbled over this new dolly system. It’s called Polly. It’s obviously that the name is a mix of the words “portable” and “dolly”. Polly is intended for filmmakers who like to work with compact camera systems like DSLRs. It’s design is very small and compact, so it would fit in a bag or similar.

- Ultra Portable and built like a tank
- No electricity needed
- Runs super smooth on every flat surface
- Almost no prep time
- Flexible and extendable system
- Stopmotion scale for accurate tracking sequences
- High quality engineering
Not much information but a nice video with nice gear.
