Has anyone seen the Chaos Tower up close? Answered

I just came across The Chaos Tower in my "surfing" and wondered if anyone had fooled around with this?

Yeah, I have one of those. I think I got it (For myself!) when one of the local "smart" toy stores went out of business (Sigh...), at half price. It's pretty neat, and the price is in-line with many other construction toys (knex, lego, etc.) The "track" is actually rather complex in construction, but not quite as flexible as you might want.
