A user on vimeo released a concept for Windows 8, called Concept Copenhagen.
Although the creator is not affiliated with Microsoft, this concept looks very very promising. I really wish that Microsoft hires that person, because he definitely knows a lot about user behaviour and design.
The copenhagen concept is basically all about usability, portable objects, auto-expandable menus and 3D desktops. The 3D desktop could be compared with bumptop .
It’s pretty difficult to describe it in words, you got to see this:
The Copenhagen Concept
The following is a quote of the author and creator of the copenhagen concept:
Copenhagen is a User Experience concept that I designed. It is unique in the fact that it manages to bring together classic design, contemporary design, usability, and art.
Copenhagen shatters the composite prototypical event patterns people have developed for their OS, Windows.
It is a collision of months of research, high visibility, proper affordance, accurate conceptual models, visceral experience, behavioral experience, and reflective experience, all coming together to create an amazing user experience.
