    This sounds like the Beryl/Emerald/Compiz effects that you can find on Linux.
    So far I have not seen too much of this inside of OSX from applications. I believe people are using Geektool to create all of the fancy effects on their desktop

    Beryl/Emerald/Compiz isn't available for OS X (or Windows, for that matter). You could see if you can find an older (free) version of BumpTop for a 3D desktop. BumpTop got bought out (I think by Google) and is no longer available. If you can't find a free version of it online, PM me and I'll send you my copy (perfectly legal).
