Very cool!

Looks like the upper rear stays are made from gas struts like you would find on the tailgate of a station wagon (hope I am getting the US terms correct). Both going up and down look damped like you get an a gas strut.
When the guy takes weight of the saddle and moves forward the struts are extending pushing the back of the bike upward. You can hear it latch when the bike goes up (00:47)
Notice the front triangle, forks, and seat all stay the same relationship to each other. The transformation is only the rear triangle.
There is something going on around the seat post. could be a release mechanism as he seems to bump down on the seat (00:52) to effect the lowering motion.

I'm curios about the saddle. Does it pivot too? I can't tell.
