Mind blowing jQuery plugin: Scroll Path

Joel Besada (@JoelBesada) did a jQuery plugin that lets you define custom scroll paths, including rotations and custom scrollbars.

The technology is not very new, a lot of video presentations use this kind of stuff. However, he did a dead-simple implementation, available on GitHub which allows us to do it directly in the browser.

The result is stunning; it is smooth, mostly compatible and pretty flexible. This is a wonderful alternative to building a PowerPoint to show your ideas.

I have not used it yet, but it seems pretty easy. Check out the live demo!
