Semantic Zooming and Control Menus

Zomit is a generic package for developing zoomable user interfaces (ZUIs) that can aid in navigating large information spaces.

Zomit includes new navigation (focus+context) aids and a new interaction model based on Control Menus. A control menu is a new type of popup menu that is visually similar to a Pie Menu and makes it possible to select and control an operation in a single gesture.

Zomit has a client/server architecture and the client was written in Java so that it can be used over the Internet as a Java applet.
