...zoomed out and rotated the images using six degrees of control.

Personally im more interested in touch screen technology. Once tactile feedback is introduced (when you press a button it actually feels like you are pressing a button, and when you turn a knob...[well, to a point]) and they are cheap enough to have a 22-30'' screen ill certainly look at one mounted into a desk as a mirror of what it being displayed on the main screen. You could then have a keyboard, touchpad, sliders, knobs, etc all pop up independantly of what is being displayed on the main screen. Totally customisable to suit you and your apps.
