Significance of the Amiga Boing ball in this 3dTV Kinect video?

Saw this on Wimp.com, anyone know if there is an amiga history with the video creators?
I see the boing ball, Real3D (sculpt3d?) cow and teapot!

Actually that teapot is Martin Newell's "Utah Teapot" from the mid 70's, probably the most used 3D test object ever.

I recognize the cow mesh since early versions of Imagine, but I think it originates from somewhere else outside the Amiga as it was only available as a plain and collapsed mesh, that is, there was no additional texture-, color-, animation- or model information that you would expect to find in an original model. It's probably more related to the Stanford Bunny model than the Amiga.
