A unique challenge has been raised over at:
I’ve been sitting around trying to figure out how to separate my stupid website from the rest of the interweb and I’ve come to the conclusion that I should somehow convert it to 3D cause I haven’t seen that before. Even a quick 5 minute google search didn’t give me what I have in mind! I’ve also come to the conclusion that this would take a lot of work so likely I won’t do it, although I have some idears on how I would accomplish it (client-side wrapper/plugin of the entire window, basically, which would slow everybody’s computers to a nice slow complainy crawl). You’d need some cardboard 3D glasses to make it neat though, which likely will appeal to only about 80% of my “fanbase”.
80% is a hell of a number, and seeing how Steel White Table and Pender’s Crappy Blog That You Love have a nearly identical fanbase, I say we go for it. Let’s make this sucker 3D! Okay, then. How the hell can we do this?
explains how to make a 2D image into 3D. Perhaps someone who knows what they’re doing can create a Firefox or WordPress plugin that transforms a boring ole 2D blog into a 3D blog, preferably something that can be turned on or off with a simple click. I have no clue. How about you?
Looking at the screen right now I see a bunch of flat images that supposedly make them look like they’re raised up via shadows and gradients and such, but I mean, I never think I’m in danger of a browser button hitting me in the head, like I should if it were really 3D and the button was animated to look like it was flying at me.
