There's a demo video out there somewhere that shows it working in animation.

Makes perfect sense and after you watch the video.

I rode Forum Republics that had it. Ollies become awesomer and presses felt more consistent to me.

Rode some '12 Malas with the hinge

As everyone else said ollies feel pretty nice. You can also move laterally when in your heel turns like you can in your toe side turns.

How is this much different from the concept behind Salomon Relays that have been around forever? Burton's hinge is prob more similar to Salomon's redesigned Shadow Fit, so it doesn't seem very groundbreaking to me at all.
