Cat
Radiation
Transgender - Male To Female

FIREFOX VIEWERS ONLY! (Or Maybe Chrome)

A "Voluntary" Test Subject has been placed in this box with an unusual source of radation. The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics implies that after a while, the subject is simultaneously transformed and untransformed. Yet, when we look in the box, we see the subject is either a human or or a cat, not both. (Well, sort of both, sometimes)

I was challenged to do a Schrodinger's Cat themed transformation. I think I did a pretty darn good job!

Edit: Troubleshooting:

-You need to be using Chrome or Firefox for this to work.

-If you are using Windows, you have to have something called "Aero" enabled, which is not enabled in some classic themes.

-This will not work on mobile devices

-I have not tested this on a mac and have no support information if it does not work there.

-If all else fails, don't fret. It's just a little trick for a joke more than anything else.

Now that's just trippy. This kind of thing has potential

TheMaska

A great idea and use of technic!I am impressed!

IronPhoenix

This is pretty freakin' cool!

NightWerewolf16

That is freaking amazing. I would love to see more stuff like this

Jackwolf

thats ....amazing :D wow!

The_Inventor838

It sorta works with chrome I installed fire fox so see the difrence cool idea

carbohydrat

ok that was messed up, when ever i clicked and dragged the white box it would show the human, and if i clicked outside the white box it would show the cat girl. so i was thinking what kind of tecnomancy in hell did you use to put code in a gif image. but i guess my timing was just perfectly in line to mess with my head.

TheWorgenWarrior

look at the image in a new tab. just the image.

Rae

Mwahaha! I am an internet wizard!

Fidelius

That was MAGNIFICENT.

Bahzur

How the f....

O_O

Seadog-driftwood

Absolutely brilliant.

bloodwolf1235

that is trippy as hell man

Chili19

Woah O.o How did...

Farsightxr-20

Very, VERY good use of a gif.

Erthshade

Guess I'm going to have to be the first to say... I don't get it. I'm using the latest Firefox but all I see are a black rectangle in the viewer and a white rectangle in the box, and dragging does nothing.

Rashktah

Brilliant!!

Frilled_Lizard

Nope, I can't see it cos' I'm using Chrome.

Apfelsaft00

wow great work

Rae

Erthshade Dragging should create a ghost image of the picture, dragging the ghost image of the box over the real image of the viewer should reveal the subject!

NightWerewolf16

Dragged it somewhere else and I think I figured out how this thing works. That is a neat trick.

Rae

el-wolf It should work with Chrome, I have people saying it works.

Blear

OK, this is a pretty classy pic. Even classier once you realize/find out just how the trick was done (though I'm not gonna spoil how it was done, that'd just be in poor taste even if others have figured it out already).

Gotta say, I'm impressed -- good job at making use of the tools available to you to turn out something so inventive!

Ycestar

I'm using Chrome and it worked just fine. Nice job.

Transfreak

i can't get it to drag just zoom in and out so i cant see the art just 2 boxes .

Ninja522

I'm a mac user and it works just fine on a mac using firefox.

WhiteflameK

Stochastic variation in lateral displacement vectors brought about by unquantifiable ambiguity of a kinesthetic-organic interface? Brilliant!

WhiteflameK

Addendum, coupled with selecting an option in an epistemic void.

Cynicalle

Warning, for anyone who is epileptic. Try to avoid right clicking on the image and clicking 'view image' - flashing images.

Nice picture Rae, very innovative.

Rcoon

the shape of TF to come

Nargus

OHhhhh!!! ROFL That's so neat trick! :D

Super easy too! And technically should work on all browser :D!

Frilled_Lizard

Oh yeah, now I see it! Neat work!

BloodSeer

Dang that's neat

Taranth

Really neat on the pic. Wow!!

leviadragon

Be nice to have a functioning version for IE somehow...

Mechie

Haha Cynicalle I did exactly what you did ('view image' on the white box in Firefox). Nice way to 'cheat' and see both images better.

Vene

Mind = Blown O_o

SeaCigar

*whistles* and here I thought schrodinger was bunk.... Well, I still do heh, but this is a damn impressive set of tricks. Makes me want to write a story on a metaphysics triggered transformation... though I doubt I have the brain power to pull it off in any convincing way. Kudos for a quite original piece!

GrauerWolf

Holy Shit... now i want a Box and a little Radiation... O__o

Proxer

Hahaha! Well done on that little trick. Cant say Ive ever seen anything like it on the internet before.

Superboo

It works for me with Chrome, running OSX 10.7.4. Awesome! This is really clever. :D

Nothingsp

Firefox 1.5 doesn't work with it; not sure why. How does it work? (How in the world does Aero play into it? I'm running XP...)

Any chance of just getting the images separately?

Stas_Jana

Not working on ANY browser. Tried few versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera and even IE. All I can do is enlarging the pic

Bun

gota love alpha

Xodiac

Very clever and original. I love it!

wheezil

The issue with IE is that it uses a different algorithm for the same effect. Basically, it zigs where Firefox zags.

Lunis24

That is amazing!

RaidenThrone

Using an animated GIF as a Gimmick to awe people? >.>

SeaCigar

Raidenthrone Meh, doesn't matter if its a simple trick. The fact of the matter is, it was pulled off well. no need to be sardonic ;p

Theldrakis

does not work at all. acording to 2011/2012 new media text books you get more hits if compatible with all browsers. please make this work for all browsers. i know if you look for it you will find the codes for internet explorer. i found 5 years ago when they sent the ie 9.0 security browser out the source code developers box on microsofts web page.

Erthshade

Okay, I get the concept now. It's relying on a shadow-dragging mechanic I don't have, probably because I'm using XP with most interface animations turned off somewhere. Nice trick, though it's not a browser thing that's preventing it from working in all cases. (Tried in Chrome too, no dice.)

Crissa

Hilarious.

Safari on Mac, it works. ^-^ Gotta do it... Well, randomly.

Chrysalis

This might just be the cleverest thing I've seen someone do with a gif image. It took me a long time to figure out how it worked. Great job!

(I'm also using Safari on a Mac, and it works just fine.)

Doggard

Cant View it and I have Firefox

WhiteflameK

Catgirls, it is not an executable file...

Theldrakis

Devils-violin i never said it was exe. only that it doesnt work for ie or chrome. some are saying its a gif. well its not working.

loopyd

Perhaps you could reupload this as a sequence for the computers it doesn't work on?

Rey

Clever.

Furneck52

This is both interesting and non-interesting.

Bazzeil

This works with opera too! And you dont need vista/7/8

GreatJT

Pretty clever.

rehtlh

Oh okay, I get it. That was really clever. If anyone wants a hint in how it works, right click and "view image".

TheAppleFreak

That's actually a really impressive use of the gif format. Working in Chrome on OS X 10.7.

Pikipiki

Nice work... Very original.

I have a question though: I can see the image just fine when dragging, but when I use the "view image" option, I just get the exactly the same picture as when viewing normally, there is no flashing, although the dragging effect still works. (I'm using Firefox)

TheAppleFreak

Pikipiki The way it happens is that the right side of the picture is a transparent .gif image, while the left is a solid, colored picture. When you drag it, Chrome/Firefox freeze the animation and overlay a little bit of a gradient in the transparent bits for visibility on darker surfaces. This is why the effect works.

nej

Astounding and original o.o

Rob_arbogast

cool

TheWorgenWarrior

Thanks for the advice!
