British Library Demo of Vista and the Windows Presentation Foundation

If you go to www.bl.uk you will have the option to either go to Page Turner V2 or the British Library web site.  Go to the Page Turner web site and open the Luttrell book.  Zoom in and out, then turn to page 4&5.  You use the Ctrl key to make your mouse move the book around and the shift+Ctrl to rotate the book.  To turn a page, just drag it across.  Remember that this is running in your browser!!

Some things to notice

  • the page turns as the real material does - physics
  • The images are super detailed and can be zoomed in on
  • The GOLD on the pages reflects as you move the book

Now close this book and open the Golf Book and go to page 6&7 and then turn on the audio or text and follow the story.

So it has a refelctivity channel? Just another 8 bits on the colour depth, or does this emulate specular and phong reflections?

I have heard people talking about the "shiny" interface of Vista, but assumed they just meant its bling and pretty features, I did not take this literally - until now.
