a 'next generation' 3D desktop that aids in organizing files & directories by allowing the customization of their position in a 3D space, & by exploiting useful visual & audible cues. "organizing data in a more visual way alleviates the current necessity to remember cryptic file & path names". the application allows users to roam around a 3D space & place objects where they want. each object gives clues as to its contents by emitting sounds & mapping thumbnails & icons onto certain faces. other visualization cues include a faster rotation rate for recently accessed content, different lighting for read-only files, & variation in collision sound effects based on file size. see also space browser.
