Yes, all I could think of while watching it was "Jeremy's going to want to build one of these".

you have to think there are some bobby traps in scaling this system up ,or it would made for large buildings etc purely on energy savings grounds 

Iam thinking it would end up much  larger than a std air con unit  which would lend itself to industrial applications  and not domestic

You may be right, although I get the impression from the video that the technology is still somewhat new. Heat pumps are such a well-established and understood technology that it will likely take some time before people will be willing to trust something entirely new like this.
