Of course this prototype is still far from being useful, but I think it doesn't hurt to experiment with the idea. One needs to start somewhere. If it at least results in a one nice photo browser or something I would already consider it success. Maybe over time, the idea refines and develops, who knows. I mean, come on, somebody must be able to come up with something. Whatever it will turn out to be, it will be named Sun Java Cubeform Third Dimension Plug-Around Module Pack for NetBeans ID3. Or maybe — 3Doogle.
Oh. Wait. I am suddenly worried. About support phone-calls. And written documentation. Hm... The more intuitive and less textual interfaces get, the more difficult it gets to describe an interaction in words... 8-| Neglecting the fact that you shouldn't, it's easy to explain to a beginner on the phone how to type in "R M blank minus R F blank star, now press return-key". And yes, sure, the most unspeakable mouse gestures will eventually be given handy names, in much the same way as complex facial gestures were given concise names like LOL, Argh, or Duh. But still — do you want to be the guy explaining correct mouse gestures to the panicky businessman who just accidentally swished his live's work into the dark little hole in the corner of the screen where the screensaver lives? Well?? See! \*shudder\*
