I look at the RSII and a ONT minion and they (skipping some details) pretty much do the same thing (produce long reads). Yet the one requires concrete reinforced floors and the other can be held in your hand. Just find it astounding the difference in scale.
One of them is an optical platform doing laser based detection of nanometre scale wells, and the other ... isn't. You can't 'skip the details' here, the details are the reason
