According to the website, the new Magic Carpet Camera Slider from Syrp (starts at just $299) sold out on it's first release and pre-orders and will be ready to begin shipping by approximately the end of November. What is the Magic Carpet Slider? Here's a short intro video and product description below.
The Magic Carpet is a simple, portable solution for obtaining buttery smooth tracking slider shots. Designed with a full roller-bearing carriage and quick-release levers the Magic Carpet ensures your time on-location is well spent creating amazing footage rather than dealing with the technical setup of your shoot.
The Magic Carpet also comes motion control ready by simply adding the Genie (vimeo.com/46075511) to the track you are setup to film smooth motion control time-lapse or real-time video.
Either choose from a Short Track (2.6 Feet / 800mm) or a Long Track (5.2 Feet / 1600mm). It's universal design means you can easily add another length track to your kit and use the same carriage + end caps giving you the flexibility of longer camera movements and portability in one package.

So if I'm understanding this correctly the Genie motion module is compatible with other sliders?? Anyone try it on a Konova K5?
I have been using the Genie for about six months now. It is a little quirky, but the flexibilty I have using it it is really good. Definitely takes some time to learn all the quirks. I used it in the video below.
So glad they added the Repeat function. This will make my Genie, much more useable. Babysitting a timelapse is a bit of pain—-the repeat function allows you to go off and get a coffee and not have to worry about your time lapse stopping.
The magic carpet looks really well thought out.
