Zcubes – do it all in your browser

I have been playing around with Zcubes for a couple of minutes. It’s in beta. It’s quite slow and it looks ugly. But, this baby lets you do quite a lot within the browser. At this point only Explorer 5.5 and above. So, if you’re in Explorer you can go directly to a test page here.

Or, read more about it over at Read/Write Web:

In terms of using ZCubes, the idea is that it allows users to create “experiences” – ranging from the creation of personal pages, greeting cards, posters, portals, research/academic papers and more. Making these experiences easy to use is also key, as noted in a recent ZCubes blog post – e.g. providing simple drag-drop based utilities.

  1. Yes, Sean Alexander’s blog covers WPF/E quite good. MS is doing a lot of interesting things in that direction. And, the development tool for windows media center edition for Vista also adds a couple of powerful possibilities.

    I have heard about that rumored pipe-demo and guess that it would be quite easy to solve with WPF/E… ;-)

    perhaps there should be a “remake” – a version 2.0 – somewhere down the road …

    I saw he had a feature on the first version of the animated example, and some nice thoughts on one clear use: sports – showing angles or matches or place (like 2,5 and 7,5 km for ski)

    I played around with the beta a little bit.

    The drag drop feature is good. Handwrite feature is also good. I didn’t try ZPaint yet.

    Does ZCubes let you create and host the home page free ?
