This is awesome!
Finally a use for that tacky virtual-spin stuff - landscapes and car ads have nothing on stuff like this
Political sensitive hoohaw - I'm pretty amused at the ad for a: "cream of wheat" chef rag doll on the bottom of the cream of wheat box. "doll in fast colors is ready to be cut, sewed and stuffed"

nice link, ..nice login name too

oh just zoomed in on the cream of wheat thing. the last line makes the ragdoll line funnier. "this offer void in states whose laws prohibit it" um ... like the north?

Wow! I especially liked the use of 3D for the Beeman's gum.

Great fun! Like picking something up and being able to examine it properly. Thanks, putzface_dickman!

I would prefer to see great (non-flat) art, automobiles, or (NSFW) women in 3D. While the tech is cool, who cares about boxes of old bad foods?

People who appreciate design as art, that's who, billsaysthis.

I'd seen this site before, and while I understand the warm glow of incandescent lights give the non-3d pictures an aged feel, I find the dim orangey cast to be annoying.

Still. The guy who runs this site should hit up Terry and Ralph Kovel, who have a huge collection of old merchandise packaging.

Damn, I always wanted to feel like I was playing quake with various historic consumer product packagings, and now I can live my dream!

Excellent--except for the zoom function, which doesn't work on my (OSX, Safari) machine. Can porn be far behind?

superb post. I'm not sure what I'm enjoying more - spinning the 3-D products like tops or reading the back of the packaging.

Ok, I'm a geek. The answer is clearly "reading the back of the packaging".

Can porn be far behind?

One can only hope not....
