You won't believe the efficiency of the Big Foot's size and space.  It wasn't easy to squeeze most of the capabilities of a Genie into a machine the size of a shoebox, 12 inches x 6 inches x 6 inches, but that's the BIG FOOT.  Here it is all buttoned up to carry off with its own carry handle for storage or travel convenience.
