One of the problems of using this concept in a drivetrain is the inability to complete the chain Circle. Notice how the video only shows you a semicircular chain progressing up the slope. Since chain links are a fixed-length you would have to stair step the ratios down the cone. Now it begins to resemble a standard transmission.
