Zoomable User Interfaces

Over at Usability Post. Huhm, interesting concept, though I'm not sure that thumbnails are scaleable to too many items (they become too small to be distinguished quickly). I suppose the key for me would be not a simple scaling UI the way zoom is currently implemented in OS X for example - you loose the toolbar, dock, etc. I'd want different elements on the screen to be independently scaleable I think so that I can keep one item I'm working one in focus while I search around for something else on another part of the screen all without loosing the ever-vital menu bar (in the manner which I use a computer anyways - it's always interesting to watch how differently people will navigate a comp to accomplish the same exact task).
