This brilliant little demo by Steve Wittens uses a pair of large sprite sheets (one for colour, one for opacity) which contain the cross sections of a human head taken by an MRI scanner. Each slice is drawn into its own canvas using the colour and opacity information from the sprite sheets. CSS 3D is used to position all the slices and line them up next to each other in 3D space, effectively reconstituting the head. JavaScript is then used to update the location and rotation of the slices, as well as switch them on and off. CSS 3D is something of an unsung hero, I feel. When combined with JavaScript it can be an extremely simple yet powerful renderer. "Lathe Machine" by Einar Öberg. Multiplayer music making with Plink! Trigger Rally – online edition.

SlabText – a jQuery plugin for creating big, bold & responsive headlines. I’ve been wanting to attempt a port of Erik Loyer’s slabtype algorithm for quite some time now and seeing Paravel’s fittext jQuery plugin, in combination with a gloriously hassle-free lunch hour gave me the impetus to attempt it.

This is the result – resize the browser viewport to see the effect in action. So what does the script do again? Put simply, the script splits headlines into rows before resizing each row to fill the available horizontal space. The ideal number of characters to set on each row is calculated by dividing the available width by the pixel font-size – the script then uses this ideal character count to split the headline into word combinations that are displayed as separate rows of text.
