CSS/HTML LOST intro

Posted on

LOST has been over for a while now, but that doesn’t mean it’s dead. Yesterday I was spontaneously inclined to see if I could recreate the iconic show’s intro using only CSS3 and HTML5.

A few disclaimers, and also some bugs:

  1. It has sound. Turn off your music and turn up (down?) your speakers.
  2. You need a Webkit browser. Latest Chrome or Safari will do the trick.
  3. On Chrome, it works better at a 1024×768 window size. If you have a bigger screen, like me, then shrink it. Any bigger and the animation blanks out for a few seconds halfway. I’d love to know how to fix this. Safari is fine.
  4. It doesn’t work on iOS devices, and I’m not sure why. Again, fixes please!

So, without further adieu: CSS3 + HTML5 LOST intro
