The screenshots look pretty cool, and I really like the idea of using the 3D interface to browse web content from your TV. I’ve been having a lot of conversations about Rich Internet Appliations in the living room and with the XBox 360, Windows Media Center and browsers in the Wii and PS3, there is a broad platform for bringing the web to the living room through a great experience.
The Official Live TV blog has some more info:
Media Center has brought the PC to heart of the home, adding Windows Live services to Media Center will make it easier to stay in touch with your social network. Our goal in creating Orbit is to bring social networking to a new form factor that is both intuitive and fun to use. We built the application in Windows Presentation Framework (.NET 3.0) and it will run withing Vista Media Center or directly in Vista hosted IE7.0 browser.
