    Post Pic Lens photoviewer

    I came across piclens while was a-surfing over lunch.

    It's supposed to give you instant full screen views of images on the web. Going to download it tonight and give it a go but just posting here to a. remind myself of the link and b. give everyone an opportunity of testing it for themselves.

    I've shown my co-workers here and they have gone gaga over it. I sent the makers an email and asked them what needs to be done to make a site work with it.

    By the way, you are going to want to use FireFox (or Safari) with it. FF and Safari provide a whole lot more features than IE does when you use it. I installed it on both IE and FF (don't have a Mac), and FF has a superior implementation.

    Depends-

    To use the PicLens Lite, you need to install server code (javascript + flash) and add a media RSS feed to the image in the page. It produces results similar to Lightbox2/Lytebox/greybox, etc.

    The magic of the browser plugin seems to be only dependent on the generation of the photos.rss file on a page.

    Interesting stuff.

    The thing I'm looking at is that you can combine this interface with something like M$'s Surface and have an incredible picture browsing experience. Now all we need is a holographic monitor and motion sensors for hand movements and we are geeking out big time.

    Don't you think that would rock for this site, if we could do like a master repository of all the maps and artwork? That way a visitor could quickly and easily browse through what we have up and when they find something they like they can jump straight to it.
