Can I have a messy virtual desktop?

Cool pick from Mobiface: the BumpTop Prototype, a very realistic desktop metaphor, introducing mess in a well ordered desk…But really, look at the video, the result is really amazing…

And following the yesterday post about Gyros and UI, Small Surfaces noticed this article on 3G portal about “Mobile User Interfaces – Its Time for a new paradigm”. The article point several weaknesses of current UI, especially the second generation one which is too much desktop oriented (and that’s one of the reason I think that Symbian is going into the wrong direction in terms of UI), and prone the creation of a new generation of UI, using the features of the phone (location, movement, camera, etc..)instead of trying to recreate a desktop metaphor.
