I remember that, it was sort of text based as I recall.  These days  
it's all graphic openGL etc.  Like these: spacetime <http:// 
www.spacetime.com/>. 3B <http://3b.net>, Spheresite: <http:// 
www.spheresite.com/> or possibly that amazing thing from TED  
(photosynth (Yeah I know it's M$ but it's really, really worth a  
watch): <http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/view/id/129>

It seems it was something called HotSauce: <http://en.wikipedia.org/
