It is a “smash-up” of Java applets and next generation web concepts. You can create galleries, edit photos, rotate and create that cool 3D rotating photo cube effect we’ve been seeing lately, you name it. Jasper’s short online demo of Iris is really cool, too! (I think the live demo is to be presented in Jasper’s talk at JavaOne tomorrow.)
Hey! Shag me baby!
BTW, thanks to Henry Story for the link to this (he is always sniffing out the good Java stuff).
