Amazon’s WindowShop is Cool

This is just too cool not to share. Amazon’s new WindowShop is a fascinating UI that allows you to scroll through tiles of what’s hot in books, movies, and music. Each tile offers up a preview of the product. The UI looks very familar to CoolIris (previously known as PicLens) which I use to browse photos on Flickr. All you do is scroll through and enjoy the ride. This looks great on a large screen,   but you really don’t get the full effect on lower res devices.

    Wow not bad, it’s a really great idea… makes you browse and look at what you may normally skip. Making instant game video previews, movie trailers, song previews and book previews with audio accessible like this is quite entertaining, and should increase sales for Amazon… they are just missing a buy here button.

    I like the way they are combining more than one media, it keeps it fresh, you could spend a long time browsing and not get bored, and quite possibly broke in no time lol.
