New way of browsing

I added a picture which seems to be an ordinary picture. But experiment with it after clicking on it (fullscreen would be nice). Pretty awesome isn't it?! It is a made with a program of Microsoft called Seadragon. They say this will be the, hassle-free / scroll-free, new way of browsing...



And what about this one:



It looks like the navigation of picture-viewing on the iPhone. Now we can also do it with pictures on the internet and with our mouse.

Of course, the picture of our class, beside our beautiful faces, is a little bit dull. Imagine what you can do if there is a picture in a picture and an overall rich background. Experiment with the next example (link):

Website Bike

Again it looks like an ordinary picture, but look at the squares. There is text in it and also pictures. Zoom in on them. You can see things that were not noticable in the general picture at the beginning. When you are zoomed in and you press the home button in the screen you go back to normal again and you can see how far you were zooming in without noticing it.

Am I the only one who finds it rather addictive??
