Amazon's new design?

over 8 years ago from , I design products and experiences.

Amazon just showed me a brand new home page design - an almost bare design with a massive focus on images. Each item you hover over gives you a popover bit of information.

I got a quick screenshot here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/faf08if10vqnb5x/Screen%20Shot%202015-03-03%20at%203.39.44%20PM.png?dl=0

There's something gorgeous about it, but due to the size of the images, it feels rather intense (and busy) considering it's minimal design.
