Anand Agarawala on BumpTop- a 3 D desktop environment

Anand Agarawala, interface designer, software developer and inventor, presented BumpTop in mid 2007 at TED.

BumpTop is a user interface that takes the usual desktop metaphor to a glorious, 3-D extreme, transforming file navigation into a freewheeling playground of crumpled documents and clipping-covered “walls”.

It was created as Anand Agarawala’s Masters Thesis at the University of Toronto. It is aimed at stylus interaction, making it more suitable for tablet PCs and palmtops.

BumpTop is set to release by April 2009. Sign up at the BumpTop website to receive a beta invite as soon as they open up the private beta which is on at the moment.
