Some of my experiments with technology.

Bing Homepage with Silverlight DeepZoom

Demo URL: http://labs.fullsix.pt/Projects/silverlight/BingHomeDeepZoom/

The Bing Homepage has amazing photos (they even do some contests once in a while). What if those were high resolution ones? What if Microsoft could further improve the user experience in Bing’s homepage by talking advantage of it’s Silverlight techonlogy? They’ve been using it in other Bing areas to implement some amazing experiences.

With this in mind, I did a quick demo of what could be possible by integrating html and Silverlight’s Deep Zoom feature through Javascript.

See it here. (Works a bit better on IE, as the image doesn’t get perfectly centered in FF and chrome).
