Anyone know where to get this product?

I stumbled across this product video while researching windshield sunshades. I don't know anything about the quality (or lack thereof) of this item, but the design/concept is EXACTLY what I'm wanting. Anyone have any experience with the "Snappy Shade" product or a similar type roller-shade for the windshield? Also is anyone aware of where this product can be purchased? I've scoured the net and can only find information on ordering wholesale from China. By the way, I'm very aware of other products such as the Eclipse Shades (which is my backup plan), but I am specifically interested in finding out more about a roller-shade design like this one. I'm really not trying to spam... just want to see if anyone knows anything about this? Any help is appreciated.

Or alternatively...does anyone know if there are more customized fit sun shade for the 2012 Focus?

I've tried several from Walmart and non seem to fit the Focus. Apparently, even the large accordian style foil shade is still too short to cover the 2012 Focus windshield.

Does anyone have better luck with a shade that fits and where I can buy them from?

Thanks.

I have checked around the local shops without any luck. Im amazed that I can't even find anything online. I've attempted emailing the manufacturer... hopefully they will get back to me.

I know there may be shades that would fit the Focus better than this thing, but its the convenience aspect that I'm after. I want something convenient enough that I'll actually use it... For me (and my 2007 Focus) its between this shade and the eclipse accordian shade, but I think I like this screen idea better.

Now, if I could just get my hands on one.

Just found out Ford's Parts department does sell a customized sun shade for the 2012 Focus and it is an exact fit.....for $25. It's a foil based shade. Love it.
