This post is out of date: Check this one out!
So I jumped into a little silverlight this morning and decided to make a page that has images with hot spots, when you mouse over it blurs the rest of the image out and just shows the point of interest with a little bit of information about it. I didn’t get a whole lot of time to play with it (as you can see by the awesome design I whipped up in 5 mins) but I just wanted to give it a go and then have a think about how I can apply it to something in the real world.
Its pretty cool though, check it out here.
I might write a quick tutorial about it when I get a few minutes to myself, pretty run off my feet at the moment.
