Lines are so boring to design with. They go from here to there. Job done. Where’s the fun in that? How about adding a few detours along the way? Just a bump or two or 200 to please the eye? If you’re in agreement with me so far then take a look at a few samples of BumpyLine in action.

Sinyness
If you ask me the BumpyLines above are lacking something that I like to call sinyness. So I tossed in the ability to add a little wave-form action to the bumps.

Here’s an explorer to play around with the settings. I even tossed in a few animations to play with. Suggestion: run all three animations at the same time and enjoy the patterns. The animations each run for different durations so it shouldn’t repeat for a few minutes.

Just for fun here's an example using BumpyLines. Move your mouse around and click on the stage.

Yeah, I know it's pretty lame. I didn't say it was a good example. :)
