I just watched the animations - wow - I am both very jealous and excited about what he is doing. Hmmmm, maybe I should revisit the possibilities of Flash...
Flash is a nice animation tool and you can output to animated gifs and video as well. (thought the gifs can be huge and defeat their purpose)
I have seen these. They're fantastic.
