What was the 3D file browser used in the movie "Jurassic Park"?

Is it a real product and is it still relevant today?

3D file browser was FSN on IRIX, there are similar opensource browser http://fsv.sourceforge.net/ .

It's really just for looking cool, not very useful.


I believe it was the File System Navigator in IRIX.


To answer your second question - it's no longer relevant.

3D file systems are really just a gimmick. They don't add anything to the user experience & usually get in the way.
