Really Cool Visual Algorithm for Multiplication

One of my students in math for Liberal Arts dug this up on YouTube. I had never seen this technique for multiplication before. I love it--completely visual. Thanks, Rachael!

Hello,

This looks like Vedic math--a quick way to do calculations.

I'm really not sure. As I said, one of my students found it on Youtube. Sue and I were working on a division version during a staff meeting. Just as cool. Anyone know where this algorithm originated?
