Sure, go ahead and make some :-)
In the meantime we have already posted good quality screenshots and
photos of the product, which is already some progress:

There are two fundamental reasons to explain this:
1) In the current state of things, making good videos is a pain. You
either need to film the screen or use a frame grabber, both being
cumbersome, expensive and messy.
2) Most of our little user base is currently made up of people who are
either more interested in the hardware hacking aspects and/or not very

Both points are being worked on:
1) I'm trying to get access to the VP8 accelerator from Google, which
could be used to implement video recording and even internet streaming
straight out of the box. That would be a feature that would benefit a
lot both users and the project, as a means of viral self-promotion of
the product.
2) We are slowly moving the product more and more into the "consumer
electronics" land, both technically and market-wise. To widen and
strengthen the hardware community, I am also trying to get well known
people to collaborate on tutorials about hacking Milkymist (this is a
lesser priority though).

You can join us and help :-)
