I was playing with absolutely positioned backgrounds the other day and came up with this. Just thought I'd share in case it inspired anyone.

Nice usage graphix, not very often you see something that isn't 'overplayed' these days.

It would be pretty cool to have multiple layers of a human being and an viewing screen that could be tuned to view each of them.

I'm thinking something loosely based on operations and x rays.

Kinda like this

Haha. I was just looking for something that could use 2 images over the top of each other and make sense :-) My original idea was to have a human x-rayed but its really hard to find an x-ray/full photo combo that match up.

What I did see that I was curious is the upside down Jason dv in the upper left corner that appears to be engraved. That did have me a little curious.

Yeah I had the xray idea and then went looking for source images on flickr (since I don't have access to an x-ray machine). I found the Macbook pro x-ray and then went looking for a regular shot. I ended up having to just make the cover in Photoshop since all the photos I found were skewed a bit.

The problem is that if you look at a MBP from the front with the keyboard facing you the Apple logo is actually upside down. Its positioned so that its right side up when the lid is open and your looking at it from the back.

Haha, ya when I first looked at this I was really confused because I swore you had the thing upside down.

Here are some more x-ray images:

Well I actually thought it was a bit to simple for a full blown tutorial (view the source code or use Firebug its all there in a few lines of CSS). But if you guys want I can formalize it a bit.

Yeah, i can view the source, but what about attracting people to ozzu through search engines?

You never know, there is bound to be someone out there looking for a tutorial about this so would be worth it writing it up for that reason alone.
