Using similar principle to the last demo, this is an auto-run slideshow which as its name suggests requires no user input to start the slideshow on page entry.

It also has the ability to pause the slideshow by hovering over any image, which can be made a link to further information. Moving the mouse off the image will resume the slideshow.

So what was a complex javascript routine can now be done with CSS3, well in Safari, Chrome, Firefox 5, IE10 and Opera.
