    What if Mountain Lion treated the Dock (and Launchpad) the same way it treats Notification Center?

    [Make sure to check out the full-size image and the mockup video of how it might behave.]

    Caveats:
    - Just a mockup, nothing fancy
    - Used Apple's design cues, didn't stray from their example
    - Threw this together in a couple hours, please don't judge me :)

    I didn't think I'd like it based on the screenshot, but after watching the quick little video, I really want this to be real. I love it.

    Love it; amazing video too. I wouldn't be surprised if this is what Apple is working towards. Also, I could see this replacing the Command+Tab switcher too.

    I would remove some of the space from the bottom, or put the labels under the icon and remove space from the top, but I can also see the reason for centering it.

    @Daniel Waldron Yeah, I tried all those things you mentioned. You are right for suggesting them. I thought this looked the most balanced (and stayed in line with their current Dock philosophy). But yeah, I tried things. This is what stuck, for better or worse :)

    I really like it - but I don't think Apple will go away from the dock idea any time soon. As mentioned by @Gabriel O'Flaherty-Chan, this would be great for full-screen apps.

    There's two great things about this.

    - While you can use "hiding:on" right now on the current dock bar, it will expand over your content. Because the dock isn't taking the full width & has this 3D style, it often mess up with the window behind. You end up not seeing the app you're looking as quickly as you could. +1 for full width iOS like bar here. So that's point one.

    Point two is that it'd also reduce the learning curve for users coming from iOS devices. This would established a consistent ux & ui across all Apple products, not just mobile ones. OSX is already shifting toward this releases after releases, so it all makes sense.

    I imagine this the direction Apple will head in as iOS and OS X continue to merge into a unified OS

    I don't know, it could be pretty annoying, if the dock pushes everything above it to the top, anytime the cursor hits the lower side of your screen. But it sure looks nice.
