Time Machine

Time Machine is the automatic backup utility included in Apple Computer's next version of OS X, Leopard.

Notably, Time Machine uses a 3-D interface to track all of the different versions of a particular item of content, which includes every critical category of data on the Mac, like system software, photos, music, documents and applications. While automated backup is not a novel feature - in fact, it's been around for years - Time Machine differentiates itself by its focus on usability. Time Machine represents three-dimensionally backups as a progression of application windows that may be easily manipulated with a scroll bar that extends backwards chronologically.

Here's a link to the page on that features a video of Time Machine in action and here's a link to Macworld's review of the feature.
