Most of the uses of the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) have rightly focused on scholarly and research applications. In this lightning talk, however, I plan to look at the opposite extreme: the state of the art for creating playful and fun applications of the IIIF APIs. From tile puzzles, to arcade games, via terapixel fractals, virtual galleries, 3D environments, a voice-activated Bladerunner-style viewer and more. Time to bring frivolity back to GLAM content.

I'll be drawing from the list collated at plus any other more recent examples by asking on the IIIF mailing list and Slack workspace
