Element Manta Strobe replica
According to the Russian blog site Russian Geardo, Element is working on a replica of the S&S Precision Manta Strobe. It has not yet been confirmed from Element themselves, neither on their facebook page nor on their official homepage, but Russian Geardo revealed pictures and a video of a working prototype:

From what we get out of the Google translation, it appears that the light will also feature an infrared mode and that it will be released in February 2012.
The real Manta Strobe is a helmet mounted green and ir marker light that features a curved bottom to better fit onto the helmet and a vibrating motor to give feedback while handling the light blindly, as the light is usualy out of sight when sitting on top of the helmet. As we see in the video the vibration mechanism has been replicated as well, though strangely the bottom doesn't seem to be curved but it is a prototype after all.
