MacWarriors 3DOSX 3DOSX is a file system browser that utilizes three dimensions to view directory hierarchies. It supports a full range of file system actions, such as copying, labeling, creating new folders, and ejecting disks. We released to the public on March 8th, at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Engineering Open House . We entered it against a myriad of other student projects in a design competition winning 2nd place. Simultaneously, we made it available free for download from our web site, http://www.acm.uiuc.edu/macwarriors . 3DOSX was developed using Cocoa and Carbon routines to gain access to the file system, and OpenGL for display.
HotSauce (code named Project X ) was experimental software developed by Apple Computer as a sample application of its Meta Content Framework . HotSauce generated a 3D visualization of the contents of an MCF file, for example a website sitemap. It could also be used to navigate the contents of the user's hard drive. HotSauce
Information Visualization & Interaction
An Atlas of Cyberspaces This is an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other emerging Cyberspaces. These maps of Cyberspaces - cybermaps - help us visualise and comprehend the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen, in the wires of the global communications networks and vast online information resources. The cybermaps, like maps of the real-world, help us navigate the new information landscapes, as well being objects of aesthetic interest. They have been created by 'cyber-explorers' of many different disciplines, and from all corners of the world.
