Google acquires 3D desktop interface maker BumpTop

Posted on Monday, May 03 2010 @ 17:10:44 CEST by

BumpTop announced it has been acquired by Google. We first heard about this startup about a year ago when they released BumpTop 1.0, an innovative 3D interface with touchscreen support. It's unknown what Google plans to do with the technology, but we guess it may be adapted for Google's Chrome operating system.
Dear BumpTop fans,

More than three years ago, we set out to completely change the way people use their desktops. We're very grateful for all your support over that time — not just financially but also through all the encouraging messages from people who found BumpTop inspiring, useful, and just downright fun.

Today, we have a big announcement to make: we're excited to announce that we've been acquired by Google! This means that BumpTop (for both Windows and Mac) will no longer be available for sale. Additionally, no updates to the products are planned.

For the next week, we're keeping BumpTop Free available for download at bumptop.com/download to give BumpTop fans one last chance to grab a copy.

Existing BumpTop Pro users should visit bumptop.com/pro for more information.

Thanks again for all your support over the years. Despite our change in strategy, we remain as passionate as ever about helping shape the future of computing!
