S 17 Semi-Recumbents

Hey has anyone seen one of these S 17 Semi-Recumbents up close?

Or does anyone have additional information on the S 17 Semi-recumbent?

Looks like an interesting configuration!

It seems it hasn't been released yet, so nobody is liable to be familiar with it. Looks a bit sucky, if you ask me. The narrator claims an aerodynamic position, but the rider is sitting bolt-upright, exposing almost the maximum possible frontal area. Obviously he doesn't understand aerodynamics at all, which makes me suspicious about any other claim he might make. Seating is very high. Putting roof on it is senseless if you don't have fenders. I'll stop there.
