Grab a virtual giraffe and hurl it through the air. Handle a virtual beetle until it explodes. Make a virtual horse dance on its hind legs. Frederic Durieu's 'Experimental Zoo' is innovative Shockwave programming at its most delightful. Rather than programming standard vector objects (balls, shapes, wireframe models) to respond to simulated gravity and mouse input, Durieu maps realistic shockwave behaviors to photo-realistic animal images. Each body segment is individually programmed to move in realistic relationship to others. The results are novel, bizarre, and engrossing. - Curt Cloninger
