What can we expect from Leopard’s Core Animation?

At Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference Steve Jobs and his collegues presented some nice new features of the upcoming OS Leopard. One thing that draw my attention a lot was Core Animation. With it a whole new way of interaction might be possible if developers see them.

One application that already is on a good way but proably couldn’t use Core Animation yet is CoverFlow, a nice application to flip through your iTunes albums. For people who remember the cover art, and I think many people do, this is a pretty way of searching what they want to listen to.

This is only the beginning, I assume people to change the way we work with folders, files, images. Maybe this will lead us someday to something like the scene in “Disclore” where Michael Douglas moves around files in a virtual space.
