Lots of people asked for this. This may not have been what they hoped for when they did but there is is free for the taking like it or not.
I see what you are saying but 100 rounds in a halo doesn't take up a whole lot of room. It could easily be "smooshed" down and still work well. I remember someone has done this to an old set of halo shells.

I like the idea I a 100rnd force feed loader but I personally wouldn't buy it. I would prefer something shorter and that sits closer to the gun. I also never really liked the Halo loaders, although I haven't used one in a long time.

What I would personally like to see and would buy would be a shorter top shell for the Rotor.

It is pretty dang small. I don't have a rotor to compare but its quite a bit smaller than my prophecy.

If it's from Inception, is it a hopper inside a hopper?

It's a free and open source program for a 100 round shell that excepts a number of different motor and feed ramps from current hoppers on the market. Being that they are custom made and 3D printable anyone with some CAD skills could manipulate the design to what they want. So the question is now that all the hard work is done who wants to chop this thing down and produce some low pro shells. I have a Pulsed halo feed ramp just itching to get dropped in one of these.

100 Rd motorized hopper: Not huge but kinda neat niche market item. As big as other things that have made MCB frontpage headlines.

Open source project that recycles industry parts: this could be huge. Imagine if there are highschool students who love the project, and they cut their teeth making and modifying the loader. In a sense, they get to collaborate on a project with an established pb airsmith, and their minds get rolling on new ideas and open source projects. It could help create new airsmiths, and it could get the ball rolling on other open source projects that help consumers. Those possible results would be huge.

because frankly the flow rate of balls into the feedgate is too slow with the long sloped short design. I toyed with that idea, and it just doesnt make sense.
