Chainring disk break

I think I was at the Bike Kitchen one even discussing how terrifying it would be if horses were carnivorous predators and somehow fell into the subject of disk breaks on fixed gears. Someone mentioned that they had seen one where the break was actually attached to the chainring instead of a rotor on the hub. Well, I finally saw some pictures of just that today and thought I would share it. Im not sure how well this works but I must admit I like the idea and I think it looks pretty neat. I think it sufficiently maintains the clean look of a fixed gear that makes that style of bike so appealing in the first place. Read up on it here.
