Impulse Slider is a simple jQuery plugin that takes advantage of jQuery and CSS3 transforms / transitions to create a slider with 3D image flip effects. It supports all CSS3 enabled browsers and has the ability to custom transition durations & effects and CSS.

How to use it:

1. Markup html structure

<div class="nav"> 
<span class="left arrow" style="">&lt;</span> 
<span class="right arrow">&gt;</span> 

<div id="cubeCarousel">
<div id="cubeSpinner">
<div class="face one"> <img class="img_slider active" src="img/1.jpg"> </div>
<div class="face two"> <img class="img_slider" src="img/2.jpg"> </div>
<div class="face three"> <img class="img_slider" src="img/3.jpg"> </div>
<div class="face four"> <img class="img_slider" src="img/4.jpg"> </div>

2. The CSS

.nav {
margin-top: 50px;

position: absolute;
.arrow {
width: 20px;
