Visual search with AIR and Papervision

I just did a little experiment with AIR and Papervision. This app grabs all the overview thumbs from, saves them together with the corresponding tags in a local database and lets you search through them. It also generates checkboxes for each tag so you can filter them. The search result is visualized with papervision. It´s really fun to type and see all the items fly around and rearrange.
I only have a screencast here for now but I plan to release a simpler version with source soon. I used Ying to record this screencast so the fps is a bit low but believe me it`s super smooth in reality.

Check out the screencast

What I learned from this experiment?
– AIR rocks!
– AIR Sqlite support roocks!
– Papervision rooocks!
– Flash Player performance roooocks!

  1. Great job. i like it so much. but i can’t see the air installation file. where is it. where i can download it. please give the url.

  2. source is not available at this point. It`s just a little tease but as I said in the post I plan to prepare a version with source soon.

  3. Hallo Bejnamin,

    Very cool, I look forward for the source code.

    Keep a head,

    We will see in Berlin in the Air Tour 2008,



  4. Cool demo – how complex is that repositioning /animation stuff in Papervision?

    Looks great – can’t wait to see the source!

  5. Hey Adam,

    Yeah i totally forgot about this one :-)
    The problem is that the example depends on some client backend and at the moment i`ve absolutely no time to create a clean example to share. What are you espacially interested in? It`s pretty basic papervision stuff. If you need a tip how to do it yourself let me know.
    (I really try to put something up – but no promise – I feel bad :-()

  6. Did you ever post the code for this? Also the demo has disappeared – where is it now?
