Fun cube tool

Some Flash Guru wrote a script to take a cube and spin it around with 6 arbitrary images around the cube.  I’ve just adapted to our 6 pictures.  It’s not terribly useful, but it makes for a neat visual.

Check it out, it may give you some ideas.  I may even take my responses to this exercise and add them as images to the faces.  Too bad I can’t then embed the flash here…

Excellent visual!

Just for the fun of it, here are a couple of Flikr searches –
This one embeds in your blog with attribution http://johnjohnston.name/flickrCC/
And this is just a really neat way to search through the pictures.

Hi David,

Cute! Can you make it spin a lot slower?

Unfortunately, no. The script has the bulk of the code ‘obfuscated’ which means I’d have to illegally decompile it. Not worth the effort. Anyway, you can kind of control the speed of the spinning by using your mouse, and if you click on a face, the spinning stops completely until you click it again.

Do like that! Also like that clicking on a face can stop rotation.
