    I looked at it, I was at the show talked to Ed, it is a centrifuge type set up, spinning vertical not horizontal, then the wiggle of foam and latex do the rest of the work.

    they are made with any mototor with a arm attached to the shaft, then a weight attached to that. as it spins it shifts the weight from one side to the other.
