Direct Manipulation Using JavaScript and CSS

Interesting implementation on drag and drop inside a browser done via Javascript and CSS. Direct manipulation, particularly drag and drop, is under utilized in desktop applications and is almost non-existant in web applications. The following examples demonstrate that direct manipulation is possible in modern browsers. Each example is a proof of concept. I'm answering the question Can I do this? without considering the question Should I do this?. That said, some of these examples are pretty impressive, so it's nice to think that sometimes the answer will be Yes, you should.

Left or right brained?

You Are 75% Left Brained, 25% Right Brained
The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning. Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others. If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic. Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet. The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility. Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way. If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art. Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.
