This is really cool, Sacha Barber has put a neat way to browse Amazon.com by using WPF’s ability to do 3D. He has a detailed write up of the application over at Code Project.

What Is In This Article

As I say I will be using the Amazon Web Services (AWS) to gather results that match a query string, and it will be a WPF based solution and really thats about it. Simple Eh

However in order to do this, I wanted to use a 3D type view (cos it looks nice), so by the time you read to the end of this article I would hope that you may know about some (or all) of the following :

  • Basics of 3D in WPF
  • Basics of 3D animations in WPF
  • Using 3rd party web services in your WPF apps
  • Your configuration tool options when dealing with services
  • Using FlowDocuments to create scaleable varied layout interfaces
  • A little bit about Styles/Templates

Full Article | Sacha even has a video of the interface in action.
