Hi guys,

Just curious to know, firstly if anyone is actively developing using Silverlight 2 or 3, and if anyone has experimented seriously with the 3D capabilities.  I have started a proof of concept to explore the viability of it, and so far its been relatively straight forward and promising with Silverlight 3's new hardware acceleration.

Check out my progress at

Give the videos about 10 seconds to load, and the whole browser on a facet thing is very much a work in progress (at this stage it only works in IE - stink)

Works for me too in FF (3.5.2)

Very cool demo.

Thanks. Glad to hear cross-browser support is a no brainer. I hate the fact that I have to calculate and position the IFrame for the browser (when the firefox facet is clicked) by manipulating DHTML to hover it over the silverlight pane. Very much a smoke and mirror solution but it might work.

Thanks. Watch this space, currently working on making each facet generic so it can be bound to any UserControl. Which makes it fully customisable. I want to be able to make more like a room as well. And finally zooming full screen needs to be added as well. Phew going to be a long week!
