Anybody using this? if so any input?
What if your desktop was actually a 3D environment? What if your CD or movie database became a 3D jukebox? Project Looking Glass is based on Java technology and explores bringing a richer user experience to the desktop and applications via 3D windowing and visualization capabilities. It is an open source development project based on and evolved from Sun Microsystems' Advanced Development division. It supports running unmodified existing applications in a 3D space, as well as APIs for 3D window manager and application development. At the moment, existing application integration is supported for Linux and Solaris x86 platforms. The platform for 3D application development is available for Linux, Solaris and Windows platforms.
Project Looking Glass
Project Looking Glass is in its infancy. We need your help to explore many ideas in the desktop and application space. We released the Project Looking Glass code to the whole community to explore every aspect of the technology rather than restricting access to a privileged few. We believe open development is an excellent model to pursue this exciting and vast opportunity. So get involved and let's innovate the computer user interface!
Java technology is the primary development language. We believe it is a good choice especially because of the productivity gains it brings and the rich set of supporting API's we can draw on. Having said that we are planning C++ bindings so native applications can interact directly with the system.
