Wow. Christian Effenberger pointed us to his impressive Snapfit.js project.
Snapfit takes any picture and, if the browser has support for canvas (or VML), will make it into a puzzle. Not just any puzzle, mind. A potentially wicked hard puzzle where the pieces can be mirrored in either axis. But, not to worry, if you need the puzzle solved, it will do an animated transition showing where the pieces should go, etc.
Christian sent us a few notes about performance, etc.:
It seems that Opera 9.x and Firefox 1.5 are to slow to be practicable, at least on my system (G4/1.25GHz).
Internet Explorer implementation in VML do not support all features and is unable to provide sub pixel precision. So don’t expect to much.
It works in all the major browsers – Mozilla Firefox 1.5+, Opera 9+, IE6+ and Safari.
On older browsers, it’ll degrade and your visitors won’t notice a thing.
Drop it into your site!
