cool home made front derailleur

I ran across this front derailleur on Cyclops bike blog and I thought it was pretty exotic and I would like to have one on my bike. It is a take on the Goeland front derailleur(the chain link), the Alex Singer(wire, spoke cage), and Rene Herse(telescoping square).
More information can be found through this search on the Cyclops blog.
