New Middle-of-page Google Onebox Type?

Googlified’s Haochi Chen in the forum reports of what might be an experimental new special result in the middle of the Google result page*. It looks like a onebox delivering bits from other search types, like video or shopping. In this page element, two items are displayed side-by-side. Haochi shows a video result in a search for barack, and a shopping result in a search for chocolate usb cable (I can’t see it yet; perhaps Google is just collecting usage data from a small portion of searchers to see if they want to roll this out).
[Thanks Haochi!]

*I’m not sure it’s always in the middle, as I just saw two screenshots so far.
