This thing promises to be a mobile and portable video-editing device that would handle video from multiple sources and offload all the hard work or fun times in a simple and enjoyable manner.

In the few weeks since this thing was released, the user experience has improved dramatically. The number of firmware updates since that launch suggests that Gnarbox will keep up with demands and expectations, are you willing to pay $299 to find out if that’s true or not?
