Xerox tantalised the Comdex crowds last week with a vision of sci-fi technology.
The company demonstrated the "hyperbolic browser", a three dimensional search facility that allows the user to "float" through and into virtual stacks of folders containing online documents.
This self-discovery technology allows users to see not just the document they are searching for but also material on the periphery of the subject matter.
Slightly wackier is Xerox's "smart staple" technology. The company has developed a way to program a staple so it can be waved in front of a special monitor and will automatically bring up a Web site, the URL for which is stored on the staple.
