Version 1 of TACOS

Updated 2006-09-14 17:25:34 apparently is a video of this system in action.

From comp.lang.tcl:

The TACO Shell, or TACOS in short, is a replacement Windows® Desktop Shell aimed at supporting shoulder-to-shoulder collaboration around tabletop displays. TACOS is able to rotate each window separately so as to facilitate interaction and visualization for all users present around the table. TACOS also offers a number of additional features to support the management of windows on the desktop: transparency of windows, reduction of windows to their title bar, quick window orientation shortcuts, etc.

... the whole system is built with Tcl/Tk and I thought that you would be interested. I use TkZinc as a replacement for the regular canvas, which gives me the ability to rotate objects and control their transparency. I also use a custom capture DLL for getting the content of the windows. All the rest is a lot of Tcl-glue.
