Experiment: Realistic Ipod with CSS3

For today’s post, I got inspired by Ahmed El Gabri and his article CSS3 Gradients Coffee cup. I figured if you could make a coffee cup, you could make just about anything with CSS3! For example, today I created a realistic Ipod just with CSS3 and no images at all.

First of all, I recommend to do this with canvas; I just used CSS3 in order to better understand the gradient property in Safari and Chrome (webkit) and have some fun during the process of learning :) .

Second of all, if you are going to check it out and want to get the full effect, I recommend Firefox, Safari or Chrome because they really support the gradients.

Lastly, feel free to read some of my other CSS3 tutorials to get a back ground on how it works!

HTML

 <div id="ipod">
    <div id="screen">
      <ul>
        <li>IPod</li>
        <li>Music</li>
        <li>Photos</li>
        <li>Extras</li>
        <li>Settings</li>
        <li>Shuffle Songs</li>
      </ul>
    </div>
    <div id="button"> <span id="menub" class="btn">Menu</span> <span id="prevb" class="btn">&laquo;</span> <span id="nextb" class="btn">&raquo;</span> <span id="playpauseb" class="btn">&rsaquo;</span>
      <div id="centerbutton"></div>
    </div>
  </div>
