Hi, First let me introduce the URL then I will explain what Genu is all about:

Genu is an interface to C++ which responds to some hiatus of the langage. Genu is here to respond to the none intuitive approach of text base c++ and the increasing complexity of projects generated by the open source community.It brings to the user:
  • Intuitive approach to programmation with the analogy of C++ and tree.
  • Interface for managing complex projects and instant recognition of important part of the program
  • Thank you

    Hehe! I'd say a DWORD looks *a lot* like me :)

    There are many tools on the market which already do this.
    Rational Rose is a UML tool that allows you to model object oriented design using an intuitive graphical interface. Then just click a button and it will generate all of your code in C++. Neato.

    I think that the way you represent data is not clear enought.. you may use a kind of explorer tree ( thus represented in a plane ) with depth using the third dimension..

    Left click on an item at a given level ( project, class, function, code of function being the differents levels ) bring you to closer view on the selected item and show its content or detail, right click make you go to upper level and the third button click allow you to rotate and move..
    ..just an idea.

    Because it is a developpement tool, 3D must be used to help exploration, not to represent beautifull things.

    The concept does have som potential, but instead of random colours, you should use colour codes and also have different shapes representing different functions.
