Have you ever wanted your boring 2D web pages to have, like, one more dimension? Depth Index to the rescue. It's a rough experiment into adding more depth to your computer screen, by tracking your eyes. This probably ain't production ready, folks.
How it works
Depth Index uses Tensorflow & the PoseNet model from Google, to track the position of your eyes and the distance between them. From that, it renders physically accurate parallax & scaling, based on your face distance from the screen and position.
Import the depth-index package:
npm install depth-index
yarn add depth-index
Then, import it at the top of your front-end JS file:
Now, tell depth-index which layers you would like depth to apply to. Give them the class
depth-layer, and add a negative z-index correlating to the distance from the screen in centimeters.
So, if you want an object to appear to be 10cm inside the screen, simply write:
<div class="depth-layer" style="z-index: -10"></div>
Enjoy getting deep.
