Fox News has an info video:
http://www.foxnews.com/video-search/m/21585127/meet_the_ripsaw_m1.htm?pageid=27117

best quote ever, "how would you use it practically speaking in warfare?" I love fox news . . .

it was originally built for the 2005 DARPA Grand Challenge . . .

I didn't investigate, but it probably is funded by private investors hoping to sell a bunch the military . . .
