I’ve been trying to come up with a user interface that is both novel, mostly intuitive and beautiful. The last requirement is pretty subjective but I’ve found examples online from terminal based ones like htop or nerdtree to ones that are visually impressive, if not heavy on the processing. I was hoping that someone else might know of some that left an impression for one reason or another. Digital, physical or maybe even completely useless eye candy would apply.
I figured since we seem to have a technical bent our opinions on UI would differ from the designers that usually dream them up.
