    See the Pen Rotation & background experiment by Zach Saucier (@ZachSaucier) on CodePen.

    Rotation & background experiment

    Move your mouse around, see the result. No SVG/canvas/anything else! I really like the effect

    More rotational objects can be added easily, just add the appropriate HTML structure (including the necessary classes)

    This could also be combined with a CSS-only square container and made responsive very easily. For an example of the technique, check here http://codepen.io/Zeaklous/pen/ImGaH
