More playing around with the Canvas element, now with animation!

I wanted to try some animation this time. Blame this one on Ben Nadel.

If you can’t see anything here, get a browser that supports the Canvas HTML element. Note that some recent versions of firefox ( through at least have broken canvases that might affect your viewing experience.

There is no Flash. There are no animated raster images. The drawing of the buff person is not part of the background permit image, but is a vector graphic done with the Canvas element and animated with JavaScript. It would be pretty trivial to take the arm measurements accepted by Ben’s ColdFusion code and use them to modify the vector image on the fly.
