Microsoft Street Slide

This is Microsoft’s awesome Street Slide technology to be shown for the computer graphics conference SIGGRAPH 2010. I’ve always thought there’s little left to improve on in navigation aid (how naive…I know, I know) – so it was a fantastic pleasant surprise to see them demo this very interesting and engaging navigation mode.

Hopefully they would launch this as a real, available (and free!) interface somewhere. Not even really thinking too deeply about how/where this would be really useful – it’s just that there’s a general ass-kickery appeal that cannot be ignored!

    Hollywood seems to do this all the time on cop shows-csi, law n order etc.

    wou, this is simply amassing. and the idea behind is rather simple. implementation is superb. though would be nice to see some less flickering effects, but i guess that comes with a price of computing power…
