That's a cool demo. One transition (left to right movement) and one
animation (bumpy movements) are combined to create a bumpy
right-moving box.

However, you could also express this with two animations:

I.e., you don't need transitions for this. 

Now, for the reverse movement (right to left), both examples have
issues. It seems hard to attach animations to "non-hover" events. This
is a problem worth fixing, I believe.
