SolidSound by Joseph Hyde

This was commissioned by Hewlett Packard, Alias Software (now part of Autodesk) and the Watershed Media Centre (Bristol, UK), as part of the SE3D project. SE3D was essentially a Research and Development project initiated by HP. They're developing something called the 'Utility Render Service', which is basically an enormous server 'farm' (literally thousands of computers sitting in a room somewhere in California) for 3D animation. This facility can be rented as required, potentially giving access to the kind of render power the likes of Pixar and Dreamworks use to... well, people who aren't Pixar or Dreamworks.
