Think they did a lot of testing out around mount snow last season I believe. Not a bad concept and from what I understand only the backfoot unlatches. I am considering getting a couple pair just to test out myself. Probably would say they are about as secure as bindings on a split board.
Believe Cro-Reps-Smith might have tried a pair he has a video posted in the vid section that is from these guys.
I'm all about challenging the ideas of what a snowboard is and can be for the sake of improvement. I don't think strapping in is particularly inconvienent that designing a binding system around it is worth the compromise in performance.

i rode these for about 3 weeks at mt hood and overall the held up decently enough. i was only riding the proto types so there was a lot of little things that got annoying at times but he took all our feedback on them and is going to fix that in the final models. i can say that my foot never came out of the binding when i didnt want it to.
