Droptiles is a Windows 8 Start like Metro style Web 2.0 Dashboard. It builds the experience using Tiles. Tiles are mini apps that can fetch data from external sources. Clicking on a tile launches the full app. Apps can be from any existing website to customized website specifically built to fit the Dashboard experience. Droptiles is built almost entirely of HTML, Javascript and CSS and thus highly portable to any platform. The sample project is built using ASP.NET to show some server side integration, like Signup, Login and getting dynamic data from server. But with very little change you can port it to PHP, Ruby, JSP or any other platform.

Cool project, I wonder if we'll start to see the Metro style bleed onto the web more as Windows 8 approaches and is released.

Well usualy wherever Microsoft goes, the industry generally follows. Even open source OS's have Windows feels to them. It's only a matter of time before we see these tiles pop up more often.
