If you've ever wanted to peel back the corners of your browser window again and again to reveal different colors, then colorflip is for you.

When you get to the last one, it is very cool. Nice post.

Cute find, hydrophonic.

It's by this guy - Rafael Rozendaal, who seems to have some kind of netart<>warioware symbiosis.

Is it actually possible to get a layer all the way off?

Sure, just click.

This could be kind of cool if you could hook it up to the Back and Forward buttons on your browser. So whatever page you're on now, you could peel from the left side and see the page you were just at. Looks like this guy's already done the hard part - now you just need to hook it up the the cache.

Oh. That made it way more lame.

I like how the back of the sheet reflects the color of the sheet underneath it.

Fun and oddly relaxing.

The internet has jaded me though. I kept expecting the next page to be goatse.

Bit of a one trick pony, in'it?

It'd be nice if you could use that technique to navigate between the various MEFI flavors (blue to green, etc).

Pretty.

Needs more colours, though.

Needs a nice royal or dark blue. Maybe both. I like the red, but the blues are enh.

someone should set this up to just randomly generate lots of different colours.

It'd be nice to know what kind of technology he used to get that to happen in a browser.

Baking soda and really hot water, snok.

Umm... Flash? Or do you have some more subtle question in mind?
posted by dmd at 7:55 AM on May 20, 2008


OK, I knew it probably was Flash. I'd like to be able to dabble in such things without paying giant wads of cash for a software package.
