Though most of the gaming press seem to have forgotten about it, Flipnote Studio, that free animation software for Nintendo DSi, still enjoys a very active active online community at Flipnote Hatena, where artists around the world are uploading, rating, and editing a variety of user-created clips (like our own Mister Raroo!).

Musician Billy Polard also found a creative way to use the flipbook software by making an entire music video for his song "Losing Light" in Flipnote. He says he sketched out hundreds of drawings on the system's small touchscreen over two weeks to create this touching animated video.

I presume he added the audio through an external program before uploading this clip to Youtube, as music recorded through Flipnote with the Nintendo DSi's tinny microphone almost never sounds this great!
