What is so cool about the newly created dynamic cubes — now fully functional — is that they not only provide eye-candy to the visitor, but they also multiply the amount of advertising space available to sponsors by a factor of six!
Where before one could view one of the seven gates in each of the seven spaces , one can now view six of the seven gates in each space.
Sponsors will be able to rent an entire cube or multiple cubes, or any number of facets of a single cube that they share with other sponsors.
For the moment I have made the selection of cubes and their faces completely random. Every 1000 milliseconds three cubes are randomly selected and each randomly rotated to show a different side. With the current setting I am able to control the
- the number of cubes rotated,
- the frequency of their rotation, and
- the time to complete a single rotation.
With minor modifications of the code, the randomness of the selection can be turned off and the rotation of sides can be made to order according to a sponsor’s need.
Further, I am able to replace any of the rotated sides with images, words, and even links to the sponsor’s website.
How is this for cool? Was it worth waiting for?
Now, if I could only find a reliable place for podcasting and the means to afford it! This task is still under way.
