What is Console Wrapper?
ConsoleWrapper is, in short, a Direct3D wrapper for a standard Windows console.
Output from any console application (usually cmd.exe) is redirected through ConsoleWrapper, slapped onto 3D geometry, and animated. Currently, animation is basically smooth scrolling with a small amount of perspective, but potential is almost limitless.
Picture running multiple terminals at once, flipping through them like pages on a book, with full transparency, reflection, and physics effects. Lines drop into view, and discarded applications quietly fade away. These are just some of the possible concepts which can be achieved using a 3D environment such as ConsoleWrapper.
