Well, I've almost got to the 1000 posts, so I thought I'd have a go at something interesting.
So here's a 3D maze created for IE browsers only.
Took me a night to create, and has loads of possibilities.
Has no images at all. Made with just divs and filters.
Have a play.....www.unitingrhythms.co.uk/web/3d-maze.html
And tell me what you think.
Any suggestions on what to include would be really cool.

Safari's a bit crazy
When I first created this maze, I thought it would be so much better with perspective. Well, I recently came across this page where Paul creates a 3D animated cube with perspective for the Safari browser.
Well, it had to be attempted, and this weekend I had a bit of success. Here's 2 pages that demonstrate perspective in Safari.
You can click on the images or use the arrow keys and z & x to strafe left and right. It's been a fun project!

Pretty cool. Suggestion: include a way out!

lol Was thinking of putting objects into the grid randomly and timing the collection. Or maybe a race to the end and back again. ( when there's an end!! lol )
Ideas for making it a real fun maze?
What would be really neat is combining the 3D stuff with the [rotation function and the [url="http://www.unitingrhythms.co.uk/maps"]zoom function](http://www.unitingrhythms.co.uk/web/matrix/) and have a full 3D engine. Maybe in a few years Have to get my head round the maths!!
Would it be better to have the box stay in the center of the page and have the page scroll?

Fill it with dogs and nazis and occasionally put in a health pack, some ammo and a bigger gun. Oh wait, nm...

lol.......nice one Jim
If I could build a decent 3D engine for the web I would do that. I was thinking of a multiplayer game. If I can make a 3D object in IE, and rotate an object, really I should be able to make a 3D rotating object. A tank would be a perfect start as it's quite "blocky". And to get it to fire would be a awesome.
Texture would be easy to add, just by putting a background image to the div. Maybe a nice wall. I left the grid numbers there for the mo so it's easy to build up the maze.

Made a maze that works in Firefox and Opera too
Still no way out yet thought

Cross browser with a finish, adjustable tilt and opacity:)
Does anyone know if the filters work on a mobile device? Does the webkit skew and transparency work on the iPhone?
BTW, it'll show you exactly how powerful your browser is, sorry Firefox on Windows users You might want to switch to Chrome
