but let's face it — it looks fun.

Yeah, my first reaction was "what a fucking rip-off" but they're certainly expanding on the idea considerably.

So, is this just a new technology they're going to impliment into source through other games, probably EP2, or is it going to be a standalone product?

I think the guys who went to the VDC mentioned that this was originally developed by some uni students who Valve picked up, but I might be mistaken. The presentation videos finally arrived in the office yesterday so I'll maybe take a look and find out.

Either way, it looks cool. Some really clever use of the portals shown there - love the fact your velocity is carried through so you can use your dropping speed as a launch speed :)
