Foot Pounds is easier to visualize. It takes 12 inch-ounces to equal 1 ft-lb. So if that servo arm is 1 foot long 12 inch pounds will lift 1 pound.

Cool video though.
12 oz in is .0625 ft lbs

So lets say with 44oz-in servos I can expect 44oz at 1 inch from the rotational axis, perpendicular to the arm?
