I came across this video on YouTube with a demonstration of this hive with round rotating frames in the brood nest. I am not sure but I think the language being spoken is Hungarian. Does anyone know anything about this or can anyone translate what is being said and explain it to me? Just curious as to what benefit this system would have.

My understanding is that these frames are used exclusively in the brood nest to prevent swarming. By rotating them, you disrupt the development of queen cells. You can see a queen cup in one picture; if you turn it upside down, they will likely tear down the cup. That's what I remember about them . . .
