The Eco Zoo - some amazing Japanese 3D Flash. If you take a close look at the animals there... you might be able to get some tips to live in a more environmentally friendly way!

Oh holy crap that's well done.

More on kappa, for the curious.

Also, what fnerg said. That was well done. Wikipedia took longer to load than the Eco Zoo did, for what it's worth.

There are all sorts of hidden details in the popup books if you spin them around.

great post, definitely "best of web".

the guy who programmed this has been doing some amazing stuff lately.

his physics demos are quite inspiring for any flash developer..

That's every kind of amazing it can possibly be - if it were a "real" pop up book, I'd buy it.
Sweet find!

There are seven numbers on the tree, but one and three have no animal.

BTW, "Tennis players don't marry because 'Love' means 'Nothing' to them."

(I thought that was a joke lost in translation, but googling reveals it on lists of English puns. Would I need to know about tennis to get it?)

In tennis the phrase "love" means a score of 0 points.

This is awesome! You have to flip the scenes around backwards to see everything, especially the koala one.

Also it's even better to see full-browser.

WOW. Yeah, don't forget to rotate the picture books. The detail is amazing.

Stunning Flash work.

Wow, the 3D engine in that actually works on this piece-o-crap old computer. In Flash no less. I can barely get YouTube videos to play without skipping and freezing on this thing. I'm scared. That just isn't natural.

However, I'm pretty sure the combined, accrued wattage of running that pro-ecology art piece on millions of computers just totally overwhelmed any of the benefits of people simply turning off their lights and not using disposable bags.
