Any a6000 flash bounce? Or does the flash really tilt?

The only thing that still refrains me from updating my NEX5N to the a6000 is the fact that I have a nice LIMS easy bounce thingy (http://list.qoo10.sg/item/LIMS-EASY-BOUNCE-POP-UP-FLASH-DIFFUSER/407822434) that makes wonders indoor and I really don't want to go back to the flat light/hard shadows kind of images with the flash pointed forward towards my subject (beside being an hazard for my boy's eyes ;)).

Is there anything of the sort for the a6000, or does the flash really tilt like in this video and it is really practicable to shoot holding the flash upwards?

On another note, how robust is that flash?
