Apple Starts Exploring 3D Desktops

This is just nuts. The image above is from a patent that Apple submitted that explores the ideas of three dimensional desktops… like a real fake computer desktop. I highly highly doubt this will happen any time soon, but if anyone can take a good crack at this kinda thing it would be Apple. For right now the idea seems like a big cardboard box, which isn’t really that exciting, but ideas have to start somewhere. The fact that they’re even tossing this idea around is thrilling to me.
