Techniques are described that enable a cylindrical user interface with infinite scrolling. The cylindrical user interface enables a user to scroll through content that is arranged in a self-refreshing loop around the user. The user may remain stationary and rotate the cylinder to view and select content. As the content circles the user, already-viewed content is temporarily destroyed behind the user and new content is provided, allowing the user to scroll in one direction and have new content continuously presented. In other implementation, the user can turn around in the center of the cylinder and as the user makes a complete rotation, the interface will temporarily destroy previously viewed content and replace it with new content.
