This has massive potential.

Not long to wait for a 6-1200mm f1.2 lens that weighs a 100 grams is 50mm long and costs about 500 then?

Refused to connect.

I think it's because I've got an ad blocker set-up in my router. It happens a lot with the sites Google tags with 'Ad'.

It looks interesting but could take quite a while to reach a practical form.
