I remember seeing articles 10-15 years ago in CACM about 3D GUI ideas.  
If there were occasional articles in such a general-purpose journal as 
CACM, there certainly must have been *lots* of articles in the more 
specialized journals on computer-human interaction.  So good luck 
designing something that wouldn't be invalidated by the prior art in 
those papers.
