[Windows 8] Get a beautifully-animated, wonderfully-futuristic disk scanner with Disk FalconSeptember 24, 2012 9 Email article | Print article
The future is of technology awesome, according to movies such as The Minority Report and Avatar. (The future itself, not so much.) But those futuristic computer interfaces are actually somewhat possible today–through the use of animated computer graphics and some clever design, the team of developers at Sad Cat Software created a showoff disk scanning utility that embraces the future head-on.
Using Disk Falcon is using the future. Everything is animated–and as it scans folders for files inside, the central rings rotates to show the filesize. To view inside a folder, just click–there’s an animation for that, too.
Disk Falcon is no slacker in the features category either. Aside from its cool interface, Disk Falcon allows you to sort files by filetype, file ages, and individual files. It also lets you go inside a folder by just clicking on it, and at every turn, it can announce what it’s doing with integrated vocal feedback. You can even delete files straight from inside it by dragging them from the Details pane to the Bin, and then emptying the bin.
Disk Falcon is awesome. It’s a perfect show of what’s possible now by simply thinking of what might be possible in the future, and is not only cool looking but filled with whatever features you many need.
