The guys over at 10gui.com are trying to rethink the way we interact with computers – the traditional 2D window-based desktop approach. Instead they propose a linear approach to managing windows that takes advantage of 10-finger multi-touch controls. Watch the fascinating video below.

Rather than creating windows at often arbitrary positions on a 2-dimensional plane, con10uum organizes them linearly. New windows arrive from one side, occupy the full height of a screen, and are manipulable through a consistent vocabulary of multi-touch interaction.
