Demo of a Zooming Slide Presentation

The Pad and Pad++ projects explore zooming user interfaces (or "ZUI"s). Recently I've been exploring Java-only ZUIs. The applet below is an example of interpreting an html list as a zoomable document, without the use of any Plug-Ins. The contents are the "slides" of a talk I recently gave, using Netscape on my hosts' PC. - Ken Perlin, 1998

Instructions: (i) click on an item's bullet to zoom into that item; (ii) click on the left margin to zoom out.
Notes: (i) items with no children have hollow bullets; (ii) items with many descendents cast larger shadows.
