DIY solution for sale: Wireless DSLR external monitor

Photographer Robert Benson likes to have the right tool for the job, and, if it doesn't exist at a reasonable price, he heads for the garage.  A couple of years ago he came up with a long range radio (literally) trigger when he found pocket wizards wouldn't give him the range he needed and now he's engineered (and posted for sale) a wireless DSLR external monitor.   It has been made using off the shelf products and will work with any DSLR that has 3.5mm miniphone jack for A/V or video out.  It is based around a 7" or 10" portable, battery powered monitor will display whatever is on the camera LCD be it video, live view or reviewing photos.  Pretty cool stuff, check it out on his blog or view the video below.
