Watch It - Virtual Desktop

Found this a while ago but man is it cool. It's a completely new way to visualize your files and folders. It really takes the idea of a virtual desktop to it's logical next level.

A friend of mine from Germany and I messed around with something like this a few years ago. Our idea was to use the Quake 3 engine to make a visual file system that would be built into a conferencing type environment. So if you wanted to interact with some business associates you would have them log into a virtual conference room where you would also have access to your files which you could then literaly give to whoever you wanted. We had also made a laser type pointer and a few other odds and ends. The enthusiasm died for it pretty quickly when we actually got a more fun idea for a mod. It was still fun for a while though.
