Ubik, Chap. 6 Prototype

      A screenshot of Ubik / Chap. 6.

The slogan opening the 6th chapter of Ubik says:

We wanted to give you a shave like no other you ever had. We said, it’s about time a man’s face got a little loving! We said, with Ubik’s self-winding Swiss chromium never-ending blade, the days of scrape-scrape are over! So try Ubik! And be loved!

Warning: use only as directed. And with caution.

The proof of concept prototype is structured using HTML5, JavaScript, jQuery, and CSS, while the source of its dynamic images is the Prelinger archives.
