I watched the demo, and my first thought was that this tool could easily be adopted to on-line code reviews. The initial wave would be the source, and then comments could be added at any point in the source. If I change a bit of code to show how I think it should be done. The playback feature would allow another reader to see what the code was before I made my change. They showed a lot of plug-ins (did they call them gadgets?) One of these could allow a way to link the message to the real file in a code editor (or maybe link to a source code control repository) so the author could hop back and forth between the wave and the source, with possibly a way of selecting a piece of the text in the wave and with one click "make this into a comment in the code" I think something like this will convert engineers faster than embedded video and ability to play games inside the wave. But man, it is still a cool demo.
