Ladies & Gentlemen, I present parallax.js, my latest library and experiment created in collaboration with Claudio Guglieri.

Parallax.js is a small, simple JavaScript library that reacts to the orientation of a smart device, offsetting layers depending on their depth within a scene. Where no gyroscope or motion detection hardware is available, the position of the cursor is used instead.

For the best experience, I recommend that you take a look at the site on your tablet or mobile (yep, I mean your iPhone or iPad).

The library is completely Open Source and available on GitHub, so please go and play around with it and let me know what you do with it!
