Be sure to check out the video that inspired it.

It's neat, but seeing the technique applied to a story I already knew made me laugh.

That was awesome. Definitely more work than I EVER put into a project!

Most interesting project I ever did was making a light bulb from household items... Don't really know the benefit to that now since candles are much easier to make(foil, cotton, and cooking oil) and where are you gonna get the electricity for a home-made light bulb in an emergency?

I finally figured out what that reminded me of! Not really the same, but the scene in Fight Club where it shows the main character's apartment with prices and descriptions like it was in an Ikea catalogue. Wow, ten years already?

Makes me think of Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy.

Didn't catch it (reviews weren't so hot). Guide entries would be a lot like that. They had some in the TV series in the 80s.

The TV series was the best.

They won an award for computer graphics for that show, and there wasn't any in there - all done by hand.
