More from TED: The next logical step in interface? Or does this go a dimension too far? Even a real desktop is flattened, unless you are dealing with 3D architectural models. It reminds me too of using 3D to present visualization of data. The third dimension is difficult to present and calibrate or quickly understand. Perhaps for some specialty applications, like physical system modeling, but otherwise it gets in the way of finding and understanding. Most of what we work with is finding, understanding and creating. Which 2D usually simplifies. Cool looking though.
