In an effort to combat the Pinterest-induced zombie apocalypse, Uniqlo got a little creative and introduced the "Uniqlo Dry Mesh Project" last week. Not like the name is any indication, but the project attempted to wake up Pinterest users with an "animated" stream by live-pinning multicolored items in a choreographed sequence across so many computers. Or rather, they made an online flip-book. And all it took was a lot of people and little hacking. Check out how they did it in the video above.
