Smokescreen makes Flash content visible on iPhone and iPad (video)

Chris Smoak's Smokescreen does exactly what it says: enable Flash content to play on Apple's iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad. Sort of. Here's how Smokescreen gets around using a Flash plugin as described by Simon Willison:

 "It runs entirely in the browser, reads in SWF binaries, unzips them (in native JS), extracts images and embedded audio and turns them in to base64 encoded data:uris, then stitches the vector graphics back together as animated SVG."
