General Development Brown University has developed an IDE for Java called Code Bubbles that takes a pretty radical departure from current IDEs. While most IDEs, such as Eclipse are file-based, Code Bubbles is based on fragments. The system appears to support reading and editing code with fragments, multi-tasking, annotating and sharing, and debugging with bubbles. There's a website with video too.

All major Java IDEs can do that, actually. This is just a different, very cool, form of presentation.

Yeah I guess you are right. But this seems to be almost instantaneous ... as if it were preloaded. Also the task bar is interesting.

You are likely thinking of Robert Zemeckis

known from movies like Back to the Future and the Frighteners but not really for any of his other movies.
