    Question Animated text like on mullen.com

    Hi all
    I would love to learn to program a similar animated text affect like the thing on:
    http://www.mullen.com/

    It does not need to have the advanced gravity options and so on ...

    I'm taking it's using somekind of a javascript physics engine?
    Is there any libary's or code snippets that can do something like this?
    And any instructions in how to set it up?

    I understand simple Javascript and AJAX, - but need some help learning this ...
    Thnx

    - Helio

    I think that is one of the most horrible and repulsive effects I have seen for some time.

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.

    I think it's really cool(and smart)... of course perhaps thats why it's the frontpage of the one of the biggest most famous advertising agencies in the world xP

    Anyways, taste be taste ... I think I can learn something by learning how one could program it

    Rather than ripping off their effect, try to create your own effect it gives you more space to roam in possibility's.

    Yes I would like that(read that's my intention), but need a place to start - have never programmed anything that take advantage of physic simulation before.

    you need to look at html5 and specifically the canvas element - you can google for a mountain of examples of similar and equally cool effects. It's by no means simple, though... there's probably a library/plugin out there somewhere that will simplify the task

    http://box2d-js.sourceforge.net/ 'Box2DJS is a JavaScript port of Box2D Physics Engine. To tell the truth, this is converted from Box2DFlashAS3_1.4.3.1 in an automatic manner. (The reason why not Box2DFlashAS3_2.0.0 based is simply because I overlooked the renewal.)'

    Maybe a step in the right direction.
