Xerox PARC Magic Lenses -- Parallel? Equivalent? Value Lessons?

I had heard a week or so ago about a "Lense" technique developed at Xerox PARC
which led me to veer away from calling our early OHS prototype a "Hyper Lens."
(I'm moving now to calling it a Hyper Scope, or TScope, ..).

Mentioned this to Sheldon, who knew something about PARC's work and sent me the
following URLs.




I'd be interested in assessments by some of you with different
knowledge/experience backgrounds than I have, as to how their Lense approach
can educate us, or compete -- or possibly they've gotten there first?
