The 3rd Cyclone has been prototyped. With the additional complexity of pulleys, bearings, an infinite loop of rope, and the absence of gears, the new cyclones performance triples compared to the previous version scheduled to be mass produced. This is the version that grabbed the attention of material handling companies and robotic laboratories.
