You’ve probably all seen “coverflow” in the new iPhone and iPod Touch. It shows your album covers in a “carousel” kind of format, where you can flick between different albums.
The interface dragging through the different albums is really nice. It doesn’t distort/angle the albums at the side (this could possibly be achieved using Christian Effenberger’s amazing reflex.js , albeit with additional licensing restrictions). It also doesn’t seem to work in IE.
I think it’s a fantastic example of what Reflection.js can do anyway (also notice the reflections of the album covers show through each another). A script to watch!
