Here’s a cool little Silverlight 1.0 application that our team (specifically Adam) assisted with over the last week. In the run-up to Christmas, I’m sure a lot of us are told that we’re "hard to buy for". Wouldn’t it be nice if there was some way to give our friends and family a few gentle pointers without having to spoil all the surprise by being prescriptive down to the stock keeping unit level?
Enter the Christmas CoolWall. Adopting an idea from the wonderful auto-related Top Gear television program from BBC TV, the CoolWall allows you to find images of different items and sort them into categories of "Seriously Uncool", "Uncool", "Cool" and "Sub-Zero". You can also annotate the images with comments ("the Halo soundtrack is cool, but not on cassette tape please"). Having built a cool wall, you can save it, copy it as an image, or send it via email to a friend.
See the Christmas CoolWall here. You can also see my own (rather fanciful) wishlist, if you’re interested. And give it a try!
