It was created by Anand Agarawala at University of Toronto. It’s first version was launched on April 8, 2009. It was made free before discontinuing it on April 10, 2010. The documents are represented as 3D boxes lying on a virtual desk. The user can position the boxes on the desk using the mouse. Boxes can be stacked with well-defined gestures . Multiple selection is performed by means of a LassoMenu, which fluidly combines in one stroke the act of lasso selection. If you right click you get a Pie Menu instead of a Drop-down Menu.
