Cursor Knock

Project Description

I created this as an attention-getter for Renal Week 2008 - the idea is that everyone ignores pop-ups, people don't read, and if your cursor sat up and talked to you, you might listen. I implemented it with JavaScript. Basically, on page load, a script loaded an invisible div on a new layer with a high z-index over top of the existing page. This div contained the Flash movie (with a transparent background) that when clicked, started the first timeline. After doing its thing, a script was called to hide the div, thus removing the Flash. Cookies were used to ensure that it only happens once per week, or whatever. Pretty annoying, huh?
