The North Face In-Store Explorer


It was at PDC 2005 when The North Face showed a prototype of a WPF kiosk they were building.  Well, with Vista and WPF having RTM’d, the real kiosk has been deployed, which you can read about from lead engineer Darren David at Fluid’s blog.  (Fluid is the agency that did the work for The North Face.)  If you live near a North Face retail store, go check it out!  This is an exciting milestone for WPF and Vista, as it is one of the most ambitious .NET 3.0/Vista applications deployed to date.  Note that the white paper written about this application is still relevant and worth reading.   The code samples all work just fine on the final bits and have some useful code as far as state management, image montages and a 3D carousel.
