    Has anyone seen one of these in person?

    Looks like a generic version of the MSR Microzoid. I have one of those, but I haven't used it in the field yet. Just some backyard fooling.

    Can the Zoid be deployed as a hammock?

    No, it's a tent/bivy only. Same general shape and size though I think.

    I wonder how you get in and out of that thing when its in Hammock mode.

    I think I would be a little cautious with something like this. In my experience, something that is advertised as being able to do everything actually does nothing very well...

    And for its first appearance to be on eBay is kinda suspicious. Anyone find more details on another site?

    I could find anything. It was the first time I'd seen anything like it. I think it is a cottage industry and the guy selling them on Ebay is the designer, but I'm not positive. The hammock appears to be all he sells.

    Want me to invite him here to discuss it?

    Sure - everyone's welcome! As long as he contributes more than sales pitches. Answering questions about his product isn't a sales pitch, IMO.

    It just does not look stable to me in hammock mode. Looks like it wants to spin.
