The experiment shows a familiar looking bookshelf, but cork-screw shaped and endless. You pick a subject, and scroll through the book titles. To look at one, just click it, and a 3D-looking book comes to the foreground, enabling you to flip through the pages.

Check out the video below, and read Google's own description. But: How cool is this?
