Visual Search Engines from Web 2.0
Red Zee is a new web 2.0 search engine that displays images of websites that flip across the screen in a fun, interactive manner. I can see it being very useful in classrooms for students who need cognitive supports and may benefit from visual search engine, classrooms for learners with Autism and other visual learners and for use with a touch screen.
SpaceTime sells itself as a 3-D search engine and browser. I'll be honest, I kind of don't "get" SpaceTime, especially the browser, but the idea of "3-D" stacks of websites or images to flip through as your search results carry the same advantages as RedZee.
P.S. I want a stuffed animal of the RedZee zebra!
