CSS3 Animations are Fun!

So I decided to try out webkits css3 animations. Been seeing cool things crop up lately and I wanted to try my hand at doing my own animations, and see what they are capable of. I came up with a timed rotary counter. The below example uses no images, or javascript, its all css. I cant wait until this is standard.. no more clunky markup for shadows, or creating gradients in photoshop.

Overall the webkit css animations aren’t that difficult. The trickiest part was giving the illusion of the counter looping around. I just did this by adding a 0 at the end of the element, and changing the top position back to the original value at the end of the animation.
