The video by Barton Smith, appears to be a prototype UI for a conceptual “Locus OS” – described as a “location-based operating system”. What makes it special is that, it appears to be Microsoft branded. Video itself presents some very interesting concepts, the main focus of which’s a multiple “desktop” arrangement that’s location-aware – giving you flexibility in widgets and applications you see based on your location and what you might be doing. Although some elements of UX appear inspired by the iPhone, Palm Pre and Android, the designer points out that this was created in 2008 making many of the ideas original at the time.
