No, it's a joke isn't it ?

No, Freddy, it's an April Fools type prank, along the same lines as Google's infamous ones. :D But it's so well made that it seems quite plausible, yes? :)

Ahh, really ? How did you find out it was a hoax... I did still have my doubts...just seemed a bit to impractical to be real.

Freddy the link is broken under the vid  :(

I first heard about this via Google+, where there was another link. Let me see if I can find it.

Looks like I was wrong. Couldn't find the link I read, but some poking around on Amazon resulted in this page.

The link got translated to .co.uk, and that's why it doesn't work. Make the alteration to .com and it works just fine. :P

Ahh yeah, it's the Amazon Associates code that's breaking it.
