One of things tripods are always missing when you buy them is a means of horizontal movement. Either you have to buy or build a set of stable wheels for your 'pod or get an elaborate dolly setup with tracks and so on. Here's a concept by Justin Jensen of 'Cinetics' and his innovative compact version of a wheeled tripod.

I'm in love, smooth pans are a sign of professionalism. Looks like the upside down set up would be best as it has a lower center of gravity and thus a smoother look.
