see the universe in all different scales

Our friends at Nikon in Japan are always coming up with unique ways of seeing the world in a different light. For all of us that remember the math class and or science class video “Powers of Ten”, this is it in a web sense, but in a little different view. Instead of a narrated video, this flash viewer is a side view comparing items next to each other. A good example is that of a small bug next to a mountain.

The whole site is flash based with some whimsical music and a black-gray silhouette motif. It takes some getting used to, but it is a good time waster for 10-15 minutes.
