Supposedly the next generation ones will be cheaper. These first-gen ones stabilize the camera against bullet spin with a gyro and tiny bearing races, but the next gen will use software correction to remove the spin from the video and bring the cost down by a projected $3.69/rd.

The current ones are so expensive because the tiny bearing races have to be assembled by hand by nearsighted orphans in Pakistani sweatshops who have both the vision and the tiny, dextrous hands to do the work.
