Hazard yellow and covered with stickers, equipped with double-throw latches and a heavy-duty handle, it resembled something the modern army might carry into battle, a safe box for a delicate gun sight or high-end piece of electronics. Skywalker is a chunky man of 32 with a burner cell phone, an exceptionally well-developed palate, and a bit of an asthmatic wheeze. A former intern for a Republican U.S. senator — his season in Washington politics left him sprinting for the exit — he has worked as a bartender, a chef, a computer programmer, and a marijuana grower. Now, he says, he’s “an ambassador for a California-based lifestyle brand inspired by the culture of hash oil.”
Getting Started with CSS Shapes For a long time, web designers have been forced to create within the constraints of the rectangle. Most content on the web is still trapped in simple boxes because most creative ventures into non-rectangular layout end in frustration. That is about to change with the introduction of CSS Shapes, available starting with Chrome 37. CSS Shapes allow web designers to wrap content around custom paths, like circles, ellipses and polygons, thus breaking free from the constraints of the rectangle. Shapes can be defined manually or they can be inferred from images. Let's look at a very simple example.
The figure & figcaption elements In traditional printed material like books and magazines, an image, chart, or code example would be accompanied by a caption. Before now, we didn’t have a way of semantically marking up this sort of content directly in our HTML, instead resorting to CSS class names. HTML5 hopes to solve that problem by introducing the <figure> and <figcaption> elements. Let’s explore! The <figure> element

Creating 3D worlds with HTML and CSS by Keith Clark Last year I created a demo showing how CSS 3D transforms could be used to create 3D environments. The demo was a technical showcase of what could be achieved with CSS at the time but I wanted to see how far I could push things, so over the past few months I’ve been working on a new version with more complex models, realistic lighting, shadows and collision detection. This post documents how I did it and the techniques I used. View the demo(best experienced in Safari) Creating 3D objects In today’s 3D engines an objects geometry is stored as a collection of points (or vertices) each having an x, y and z property that defines its position in 3D space.
“Card Fan” CSS Gallery Reveal In Four Lines of Code I found this effect used on YouTube’s Google+ page and decided to duplicate it in CSS3: if you’re familiar with CSS, and are prepared to use a little CSS3 animation, the technique is not difficult to achieve at all. (Move your mouse over the image above to see the final version). First, the images you wish to use in the fan need to be all the same size, so that they hide each other neatly when stacked. Once you have all of your images the same size, place them inside a single <div> the same width and height as the images; I’ve given this div an id of cardfan. (The height on the div is necessary to create space underneath it, as the photos will be positioned absolutely.)
