First notes from users:
  • not to intuitive user interface, one can be "lost" for the first several minutes of using it - solved, by adding some help info
  • one could move the list by using mouse drag - solved
  • cylindrical layout is not working very good
Idea

Searching for images is not so effective as it should be. Even if you have search result of images from the google you need to do some mouse clicks in order to view image and move to onother page result. This application uses search engines and presents the result in some nice 3D view that will be much intuitive then using standard way...

main functionality:

  • search result displayed as 3D list
  • several list layouts
  • several search engines
  • plugins for layouts and search engines
  • easy to use user interface
  • user can save the image on his computer

Idea
