The jQuery Ring Menu plugin allows for an animated ring-menu effect that positions a list of options in a circle. Looks nifty in motion, and has some usability benefits such as equidistant menu choices when triggered under the mouse cursor. Built originally for the UI of a web-based videogame, the jQuery Ring Menu was split into its own project as a genuinely neat UI control.
