The story behind the CSS London Eye

23 January 2014

I was playing around in Illustrator drawing iconic London landmarks and found I had drawn the London Eye. It occurred to me that it would be pretty simple (or so I thought) to animate the Eye with CSS. The result is a continuous loop with the main wheel turning clockwise while each pod rotates counter-clockwise to stay level. I could be refactored, but it was a bit of play to see if it could be done. I think so.
