1:16 is my favorite bit. (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?)
I agree on the Tetris bit. The reverse progressive image loading effect near the end is also cool.
This has been a week of encountering 8-bit homages on the internets. First the trailer for the upcoming 3D Dot Game Heroes game, then an NES sound chip arrangement of Dark Side of the Moon, and now this.
Ah, quite. That was this week too, wasn't it? Weird convergence.
Technically, 116 is a byte.
I like the little CAUTION sign on the right side of the screen at :59. ^_^
Yeah, Voxels. makes me think a bit of minecraft.
The one dimensional measure is the pixel, i.e. "the image is 800 by 600 pixels". The two dimensional measure is the pixel, i.e. "the camera is ten megapixels". Why shouldn't the tree dimensional measure be the pixel as well?
In other words, voxel is as fucking stupid as mebibyte.
Hmm. I shall have to ensure that, should I ever have the opportunity to DESTROY THE WORLD via a grey goo scenario, it'll have to work something like this.
(I particularly like the mounting horror of the innocent playing as you see increasing damage beind dealt to the city.)
In further weird animation news, another one from Cryiak, the cats-in-hell dude: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0Xa4bHcJu8

Reminded me of the video for RÃ¶yksopp's Happy Up Here.
