If that is what it looks like, the only thing new about it is the method of dispensing/wrapping the tape. We call that stuff "400mph tape" among other things. You peel the backing off as you stretch and wrap whatever it is you're sealing with the tape, and it shrinks and binds to itself. The method shown in the video is an improvement, particularly in tight spaces like multiple connectors on a bulkhead, as shown. Trying to get my fat fingers into spaces like that to evenly wrap the tape is a PITA and hands. Especially now that I'm getting old and creaky.
I have only ever tried out samples of it given to me by salesman types, but it is pretty cool stuff. Expensive if I recall correctly but I guess it makes sense if you have an application that needs it.

Funny what you say about not putting your finger in it as one of my coworkers did just that with one of the samples, trying to be funny. He made a bit of a mess of his finger trying to cut the stuff off. The grip was tenacious and the material was tough to cut without cutting the finger underneath it. Not one of his brighter moves!
