A brief look at chardin.js

I decided to have some fun with it and used it to overlay information on a statue outside Arsenal’s Emirates stadium (image above). One limitation of this plugin is that unlike some other plugins like intro.js which take users on a clickable  tour through an interface ,chardin js offers a more static approach. However it does have some potential for displaying helpful hints/information for users or highlighting certain parts of an image and emphasizing important elements on a page.
