In my continuing artistic endeavor to bring you the best combinations of the retro and the leading edge, I am pleased to announce the world's first VRML RSS reader, NewsWorld. For a couple years, the cognoscenti have debated the merits of the two-pane reader vs. the three-pane reader. Debate no more! The answer is a 3-space reader! Let's face it, two dimensional text does not deliver the perspective on important topics that today's content consumers demand. Do you really think you can get the whole story on Fallujah without looking at the article from the perspective you get flying into the text? Don't you think that people with the ability to look at the whole story as if they were IN the story - sitting atop the second "l" in "Fallujah" - will have a much better grasp of all the details? OF COURSE THEY WILL!
Below are a couple screen shots from my pre-alpha, pre-unit tested, precompiled release:
NewsWorld: Stop going behind the news and start flying behind the news!
UPDATE: Fixed the bug where flying forward toward the text caused a red-shift that made some entries hard to read against a maroon background.Posted by Dick at November 18, 2004 12:52 PM | TrackBack
