All options with defaults

	max:                35,     // max tilt rotation (degrees)
	perspective:        1000,   // Transform perspective, the lower the more extreme the tilt gets.
	scale:              1,      // 2 = 200%, 1.5 = 150%, etc..
	speed:              300,    // Speed of the enter/exit transition
	transition:         true,   // Set a transition on enter/exit.
	axis:               null,   // What axis should be disabled. Can be X or Y.
	reset:              true    // If the tilt effect has to be reset on exit.
    easing:             "cubic-bezier(.03,.98,.52,.99)",    // Easing on enter/exit.
    glare:              false   // if it should have a "glare" effect
    "max-glare":        1,      // the maximum "glare" opacity (1 = 100%, 0.5 = 50%)
    "glare-prerender":  false   // false = VanillaTilt creates the glare elements for you, otherwise
                               // you need to add .js-tilt-glare>.js-tilt-glare-inner by yourself

let eventBox = document.querySelector("#box-event");
let outputContainer = document.querySelector(".output");

eventBox.addEventListener("tiltChange", function (event) {
	let li = document.createElement("li");
	li.textContent = JSON.stringify(event.detail);
	outputContainer.insertBefore(li, outputContainer.firstChild);
