The definition of what a zoomable interface is seems to change from person to person, but it definitely seems like the core concept is gaining some momentum. Here's an overview (let me know about any significant resources I might have missed)...

ZUI's have been developed in several different forms...

...and have been studied in several ways...

...but I have yet to see a compelling use of the ZUI that was anything more than a demonstration of the concept. Wide spread adoption of metadata will hopefully make a difference and enable the 'semantic web' with zoomable interfaces as the delivery mechanism.
