This is a truly fascination tool especially with the animation feature. For example watch China's fertility rate bounce around (presumably due to regulations).

Is this a new product or something or has this been kicking around for a while?

This has been around for a while. What's new is that Google is now hosting it and has AJAX-ified the interface. I wonder what process has caused this to come about. It certainly is "Search-like", but it also seems like a Google.org initiative. Very curious.

So maybe Google.org was persuaded to influence Google Inc.'s decision to host Gapminder?

They were influenced by the Gapminder presentation, most likely:
