CloudPanel3D

Josh,

I'd love to see a 3D tag cloud implementaiton similar to this:


I tried to implement this in WPF similarly to how he's implemented it in Silverlight but it has a big memory leak and performance problems.  I remedied the majority of the issues by removing the font size changes and switching the design around so it doesn't new up so many objects.

However, I'd like to see an actual 3D panel implementation similar to your Panel3D but using a cloud layout and allowing for rotation controlled by the mouse or via API.  Is this something you'd consider playing around with?  If not, perhaps I should read up on how you wrote Panel3D and try out an implementation myself.

Thanks,
Dusty

That's a neat idea.  I don't have the time these days to take on a new project like that, but eventually I might.  If you decide to create it first, that'd be even better.  :)
