Lately I've been toying around with the idea of incorporating Metro style elements into web designs. It seems to be a trendy thing to do lately and a lot of sites have been doing it so I started experimenting with using jQuery to achieve some of the effects.

I have several demos setup already. The live tiles use setInterval and run on a constant loop currently but I will be modifying them to use a setTimeout and make them "pausable" and allow the animations to be changed and removed as well, and hopefully a more solid base of animations. I'll also be working on compatibility with touch screen devices. Here is a list of the currently available demos:
