Cloud Carousel is a fast and cross-browser implementation of a 3d carousel – looks very nice, more like a Flash implementation. It can create dynamic reflections underneath the carousel items, is accessible and degrades nicely without JavaScript.

There are some benefits to doing this kind of thing in JavaScript rather than Flash, not least of which is the ease of integration, small file size, SEO, and inherent degradability/accessibility. Not having another dev-tool in the workflow is another plus.

Features:

  • Works with most browsers (tested on IE6+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari).
  • Accurate 3d perspective.
  • Optional auto reflections - no need to modify your images or add server code.
  • Easy integration with basic valid HTML and a tiny bit of JavaScript.
  • Small 5Kb (minified) script..
  • Degrades gracefully with Javascript turned off.
  • Fully accessible with no CSS or text only browsers.
  • Works with other plugins, e.g. Slimbox, and preserves your links and mouse events.
  • Optional mouse wheel support as of version 1.0.2.
  • It's completely free.

The idea of the gallery was probably born, when Björn Crüger first saw a CU3ER image rotator by brilliant Stefan Kovac implemented in a website. He was particularly fascinated by the effect of slicing an image up to pieces, turning the elements and recreating a new image from it.

From that day on, Björn Crüger was thinking about creating a gallery concentrating on such an effect and playing with it. With just a few variables this effect becomes extremely versatile. The Piecemaker uses the mighty Tweener engine from Caurina, which makes it support plenty of tween types for the transitions, such as Cubic, Bounce or Elastic.

Beside the transition type you can also customize tweening time, tweening delay as well as the movement of the cubes while tweening in terms of position on the z axis and positions to each other. With Piecemaker you can make the cubes move towards the screen or away from it and let the whole gallery expand while tweening. This provides you with a lot of possibilities customize the gallery.
