The essential guide to IT transformation

Intel’s architecture labs have produced 3D software which will take advantage of Katmai instruction sets and provides an information management system. The secret project, codenamed Miramar, allows information to be organised in such a way that URLs and other often used files and addresses can be placed in a virtual 3D environment. A source close to the project said that the software is intended to be licensed to other companies and it will not be available for another two years. The user interface does not compete with Microsoft software, he said. “The architecture labs spend their time developing projects that will increase processor revenues,” he said. Of course, Intel isn't the first to try something like Miramar. Apple embarked on a similar project, codenamed HotSauce, in 1995, which utilised the company's proposed Meta Content Format (MCF) data storage format to present everything from individual files and directories up to Web sites and database as 3D space. ®
