This is a simple, elegant, responsive, Bootstrap compatible 3D rotating slider that rotates gracefully in three dimensions, built using CSS3 2D/3D transforms and a little bit of jQuery script.

How to use it:

1. Include Bootstrap's style sheet for the basic styling of the 3D slider.

<link rel="stylesheet" 
      href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0-beta/css/bootstrap.min.css" 
      integrity="sha384-/Y6pD6FV/Vv2HJnA6t+vslU6fwYXjCFtcEpHbNJ0lyAFsXTsjBbfaDjzALeQsN6M" 
      crossorigin="anonymous"
>

2. Add your own content to the slider cubes.

<div class="wrap">
  <section class="cube-container">
    <div id="cube">
      <figure class="front">
        <div class="col-md-8 col-sm-12" style="background-image: url('1.jpg');"></div>
        <div class="col-md-4" style="height:inherit;display:inline-block;">
          <article> <img src="logo.svg" alt="logo" class="mb-4">
            <p class="text-center">A bootstrap compatible slider that rotates gracefully in three dimensions</p>
          </article>
        </div>
      </figure>
      <figure class="back">
        <div class="col-md-8" style="background-image:url('2.jpg');"></div>
        <div class="col-md-4" style="height:inherit;display:inline-block;">
          <article> <img src="logo.svg" alt="logo" class="mb-4">
            <p class="text-center">A bootstrap compatible slider that rotates gracefully in three dimensions</p>
          </article>
        </div>
      </figure>
      <figure class="right">
        <div class="col-md-8" style="background-image:url('3.jpg');"></div>
        <div class="col-md-4" style="height:inherit;display:inline-block;">
          <article> <img src="logo.svg" alt="logo" class="mb-4">
            <p class="text-center">A bootstrap compatible slider that rotates gracefully in three dimensions</p>
          </article>
        </div>
      </figure>
      <figure class="left">
        <div class="col-md-8" style="background-image:url('4.jpg');"></div>
        <div class="col-md-4" style="height:inherit;display:inline-block;">
          <article> <img src="logo.svg" alt="logo" class="mb-4">
            <p class="text-center">A bootstrap compatible slider that rotates gracefully in three dimensions</p>
          </article>
        </div>
      </figure>
      <figure class="top">5</figure>
      <figure class="bottom">6</figure>
    </div>
  </section>
</div>

3. Create navigation buttons for the 3D slider.

<div class="button-wrap">
  <button class="previous">Previous</button>
  <button class="next">Next</button>
</div>

4. The main CSS/CSS3 styles.

.cube-container {
  width: 100vw;
  height: 100vh;
  position: relative;
  perspective: 2000px;
  background: #222;
}

#cube {
  width: 100vw;
  height: 100vh;
  position: absolute;
  transform-style: preserve-3d;
}

#cube figure {
  margin: 0;
  width: 100vw;
  height: 100vh;
  display: flex;
  position: absolute;
  background: #222;
  color: white;
}

#cube figure div {
  height: inherit;
  background-size: cover;
  background-position: center;
}

#cube .front { transform: rotateY(0deg) translateZ(50vw); }

#cube .back {
  transform: rotateY(180deg) translateZ(50vw);
  background: gold;
}

#cube .right {
  transform: rotateY(90deg) translateZ(50vw);
  background: dodgerblue;
}

#cube .left {
  transform: rotateY(-90deg) translateZ(50vw);
  background: cadetblue;
}

#cube .top {
  transform: rotateX(90deg) translateZ(50vw);
  background: mintgreen;
}

#cube .bottom {
  transform: rotateX(-90deg) translateZ(50vw);
  background: lavender;
}

#cube { transform: translateZ(-50vw); }

#cube { transition: transform 1.5s ease-in-out; }

.button-wrap {
  position: absolute;
  bottom: 10px;
  right: 12.5%;
  transform: translateX(12.5%);
}

article {
  position: absolute;
  top: 50%;
  transform: translateY(-50%);
}

article img { max-height: 150px; }

.button-wrap button {
  background: white;
  border: 0px;
  border-bottom: 3px solid #222;
  box-shadow: grey 0px 2px 2px 0px;
  cursor: pointer;
}

.button-wrap:hover button:not(:hover) { background: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.6); }

.button-wrap button:focus {
  box-shadow: dodgerblue 0px 2px 2px 0px;
  outline: none;
}

5. Include the latest version of jQuery JavaScript library at the bottom of the web page.

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.2.1.min.js"></script> 

6. Enable the navigation buttons to rotate through the cubes when needed.

var counter = 0;
$('.next').on('click', function(){
  counter -= 90;
  var rotation = 'translateZ( -50vw ) rotateY( ' + counter + 'deg )';
  $('#cube').css('transform', rotation);
});
$('.previous').on('click', function(){
  counter += 90;
  var rotation = 'translateZ( -50vw ) rotateY( ' + counter + 'deg )';
  $('#cube').css('transform', rotation);
});
