Flash animation technique?

How is this achieved? There are several examples, is this a technique that has been around for a while or
is this something new?

My guess is each section is an image sequence, the playhead position controlled by the dragging and cursor position.
Since there are many ways to do something in Flash, could be completely wrong :) But it would be one way to approach this effect (which is very well done on that site!!)

This technique has been around for a long time, but it is a very clever and professional execution. Nice work!
If you study this closer, it is built by several sections of video. When you drag to the right, the application senses this mouse movement, and plays the right clip. It can even sense if you drag fast or slow - but it is here you can see that it is not 100% interactive; it's either 'fast' or 'slow' for instance. The video recording is top notch, and this quality and size was impossible to deliver only a few years ago. It adds greatly to the realism of the interactivity, and this is why this concept may seem 'new'.

Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted.

It is very simple to do this. Just import the video. Video will include all the actions of person. Or multiple sections can be used too for multiple responses.
About importing video: Video will need to be imported to stage with option Embed in timeline. So as you move in timeline video will proceed too. Now create movieclip as handle which will handle mouse nav. So on mouse move just goto next frames and it will feel like the guy is interactive to mouse move. You will only need smooth sections of movie.
