Check out the Windows Vista Innovation Café

Looking for new and innovative applications built especially for Windows Vista? If so, then the Windows Vista Innovation Café is the place for you.
At this new showcase site you can discover new applications that take full advantage of the enhancements built right into Windows Vista. The Innovation Café features 18 partners and 30-45-second interactive demos of each of their applications.
Here're a few of my favorite apps being showcased:
The New York Times Reader
We've talked about this one before, but it never ceases to amaze me -- I think it's a fine representation of the rich media experience we can expect in the future from today's publications existing in the physical world.

British Library Turning the Pages 2.0
Virtually turn the pages of some of the world's most famous publications with the British Library Turning the Pages 2.0. You can browse through Leonardo Da Vinci's Codex Leicester (currently on loan by one Bill Gates).
iBloks allows users to create high-quality self expressions by using photos, music and video to create 3D movies in under a minute -- and then it allows you to share your creations with your friends.

Find out what they're all about. And keep an eye on the site for new inventions our partners have up their sleeves.
