Found an interesting freeware, you guys might be interested to try it out. The software is called OriMado, it allows you to fold the window in Windows OS by moving the mouse in certain directions, or so called using mouse gesture.

For instance, you can just drag a file from one file explorer window to another by folding one of the windows, just like what you see in the picture on the right. I downloaded the small application and tried it on my Windows XP, it really works !! From the picture shown, I was actually moving the ReadMe.txt file come along with OriMado application from om_5 to My eBooks folder in My Documents.

Running the application is simple, just double click on the exe file, that’s it, no installation required.

By the way, this small application (only 197 KB !!) is still a prototype at the moment and the source code is also available for download on the OriMado website. In fact, it is built on the ‘Fold n’ Drop‘ technique proposed by Pierre Dragicevic. It supports only Windows XP and Windows 2003.

Hope you enjoy it. :)
