Anyone seen or used this stuff. The demo video sure makes it look easy, not to mention impressive. Might try this to build an aluminum PC enclosure....

I've seen that exact demo in person. Pretty cool.
I've always wondered if it actually was useful, though.
Something about it just looks... too easy? Questionable? I dunno.

Is it truly a weld though, or simply a variation on soldering/brazing?

It is soldering of a sort, but if you watch all the videos, there's one where they do a "tee" joint with some pretty thick stock, and they put pressure on the top piece, and it bends rather than the joint breaking. Looks like it might make a pretty tough joint.
