More About This Demo From The Author

I had this idea of making a cheap-looking 3D scene out of a cardboard box and paper drawings, so with my kids, we prepared a real-world prototype on a wednesday afternoon.

Later, I recreated a digital version using the same material and my library Sprite3D.js.

Have fun...

    This looks excellent. Not sure how you accomplished it as yet, but will study the code. Currently a JavaScript student so this is good "home-work" for me. Thank you much for sharing.

    You're welcome.
    Check the Sprite3D.js page, there are plenty of examples and demos that will lead you to that kind of result .

    Bug/typo report for your Sprite3D.js.

    prefixes = ["", "webkit", "Moz", "o", "ms" ]

    Opera should be O not o. Works great on opera after I changed that.

    Anyway, looks great man.

    Don't really know. I guess the Great Holy Paper Cow must have heard my prayers.

    Hey Boblemarin,
    This has gotta be one of the coolest demo I've seen. Something that I've always wanted to explore. I'm still in the midst of learning html5. Any idea how we can enable the objects such as the cows to be clickable to open a link?
    1. boblemarin said,

      The cows are simple HTML elements, like all assets in this demo, so you could use a <a> tag to make the link work, or add a listener on the object and open the link on click.
