Mac OS X in 3D user interface
With the name of Multi-Dimensional Desktop, the patent office of the United States has a patent for Apple since June of last year. This three-dimensional desktop will not be available in the upcoming Mac OS X 10.6, known as Snow Leopard, but it could be the linchpin of a future review of the operating systems for Apple, who knows, by 2010 or 2011.
This 3D desktop works with the idea of depth, so the icons and programs that places it will behave in one way or another depending on the depth at which they are located. In addition, the sides will use to place new windows and have all kinds of information easily accessible.
AppleInsider speculates with the fact that this environment include 3D icons or cells in three dimensions and a multidimensional Finder, but it is unclear whether it would be a fund-shaped oval and the side panels as if they were a cone without end, or any other form Geometric, because we can not forget that this is just a patent and that most of the time at the end do not have a particular use.
What seems clear to see the patent document, which is labeled as a Muti-Dimensional Desktop and that has the name of employees of Apple Imran Chaudhri, John Louch, Christopher Hynes, Timothy Bumgarner and Eric Peyton, is that the forms Geometric having desktop 3D (cube, cone, cylinder, etc.). yet to be determined.
