    Wave Display Effect with jQuery

    Today we want to share an experiment with you that let’s you show images and content in a unique form – a wave.

Clicking again will make the large content area appear; here we will show some more content.

    Slicebox – A fresh 3D image slider with graceful fallback

    Slicebox – A fresh 3D image slider with graceful fallback

    With the CSS3 3D transformations we can create some neat effects by transforming elements in three-dimensional space. Slicebox makes use of the 3D transforms properties and allows different kind of effects. The main idea is to create three-dimensional image slices that will rotate and reveal the next image as another side of the 3d object. In case the browser does not support 3D transformations, a simple slider will be used as fallback.

    In this tutorial we will use JQuery and a plugin named jQueryRotate.The main idea behind making this watch is to rotate the three images according to the actual time tt/mm/ss. We split that time up in hours, minutes and seconds. Then use some math to convert each of the three values into an angle between 0 and 360. one for each of our three pointers. Then we use a timer function in JQuery to do that every second. That will make it look like the pointers is ticking like a real watch.

    jQuery folderPreview

    jQuery.folderPreview is a jQuery plugin that takes a series of images and positions them so that they appear within a folder graphic. This enhances the attractiveness of a browsing UI system, allowing the user to visualize the contents of the folder. Highly customizable, folderPreview scales back images, “tucks” them in behind a folder graphic using CSS positioning techniques, and rotates them slightly with a separate compatible plugin (jQuery.rotate). It can also select images to process randomly via jQuery.shuffle.

    Rotating Image Slider with jQuery

    In the following tutorial we will create an asymmetrical image slider with a little twist: when sliding the pictures we will slightly rotate them and delay the sliding of each element. The unusual shape of the slider is created by some elements placement and the use of thick borders. We will also add an autoplay option and the mousewheel functionality.

    We’ll use the jQuery 2D Transformation Plugin for rotating the images and the jQuery Mousewheel Plugin by Brandon Aaron for the mousewheel control.
