This is a very interesting project i have come across a while ago. Nikon´s Universcale attempts (sucessfully) to visualize the concept of size though an interactive animation (for lack of a better word).
I really like the design of the site; they used only the silhouettes of their examples to give it a clean look and really, that´s all you need for the purpose. There are hundreds examples (all with an explaining subtext) from objects smaller than atoms to the extremities of space.

It makes you feel small at one time and like a giant in the next and you begin to comprehend how fascinating our world is, even (escpecially) if you look at only the one aspect of size. Try it out!
