I like the way they move….

The key idea behind these tumbling robots is nicely described here.

Idea is more important than graphics in producing a good video.

If you find yourself right in front of a SIGGRAPH deadline, and have problem finding someone to dub the video for you, and you do not want to do it yourself to avoid exposing your identity, then this free speech synthesizer from AT&T might save your day.

I tested it with my prior SIGGRAPH video scripts; the narration could sound like borg occasionally, but in general good enough so that I would pick the synthesized voice instead of mine.

Maybe the act of having someone to dub the video will soon become a SIGGRAPH legacy, among calibrating printers for optimal image quality and sending someone on a trip for physical delivery.
