Since I first saw Metro UI on Windows Phone I have been fascinated with the various controls and user experience metaphors it introduced. These include the AppBar, Tiles and the Panorama and Pivot controls amongst others. A couple of years ago on my way to the Dallas Day of .NET I created my first version of a jQuery Panorama plugin. I based it on a parallax scroller library I found on Codrops. I likes it because it provided the background scrolling effects that helps make the Metro UI Panorama stand out.
