New n-scale non slinky coupler

I saw a new prototype n-scale coupler operating on an n-scale fremo layout pushing 30 freight cars backwards through curves and switches without derailing.
I can't remember the name but it looks like it comes from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Does anyone know anything about it?

Yes, that's the one!
I just talked to the owner at Credit Valley Railway in Mississauga, and he says he has seen them in action. They work exceptionally well. The fellow does live in Mississauga and is in the process of
finding a manufacturer to produce them.

Interesting! Considering that these are modified TSC's from micro trains I wonder why he doesn't partner with them.

My w. a. guess is. 1.) It is going to require new tooling.  2.)  I don't think there is anything proprietary to MT.  3.) I wish they would improve the esthetics of the knuckle.  Think the Goemon? coupler, based on the MT coupler.

Goemon coupler (not my photos although I own some of those couplers).
