Who makes a commercial with creepy little monochromatic people anyway? The SolidWorks parent company Dassault Systemes does. And while it has the feel of that movie where the guy brings that little clay man to life, it’s very cool.

They showed this at SolidWorks World 2008 and I wanted to hunt it down and post it so could share the nightmares of these tiny people crawling up your bed and kicking your eyeballs because they couldn’t get a bike in the door and had to move from their comfortable seats. I suppose it’s better than a swarm of them coming out of the cornfields with tiny, little monochromatic sickles. *shiver*
