Watched the video and didn't see the big deal. So they projected the desktop into a cube. Wow. Other than that, what does it do that other multi-touch interfaces do not? "You can click on the pile and it expands to show what is in it". You mean, just like a folder in Windows?

Once you get past the "Gee-whiz, 3d!", does it actually increase productivity?
