BumpTop 3D Desktop...

Via meiko. Get a livejournal, man. ;)

Hmmm, thoughts. I don't like it very much. It idea is cool, but you know, it would slow me down. Unless you can combine some nicer keyboard command based search/locate with that... And our current technology doesn't quite support it. Yes, there are tablet PCs, but using a pen to do this? Ehhhhh. Gonna be a bit awkward. A standalone tablet would be even worse.

Of course, I don't manage that many files on a daily basis; more art inclined people might find it more useful: imagine being able to play with images that way, and find the one you want at quick glance. No more naming of files~ just spread them out and find the image you want.

What I want is a desktop that fully supports touch-based window dragging. The prereqs of that, though, is either a big screen, or 3D sensitive space, so you can throw windows to the back, and pull them forwards, throw them off to the side, etc.

And hand gestures. Pointers wouldn't work well enough, being 2D... Imagine... conducting... combined with system manipulation... Of course, most people probably wouldn't need something that fancy; but coders, artists, system ops, etc. would probably benefit quite a bit. Gods, one can dream. =^_^=
