BumpTop starts private beta

I just got a private beta invitation for BumpTop. Actually I’d completely forgotten that I’d registered to get an invite. When I received it I had to actually click a few links and watch some videos to remind myself of what it actually was. Then I realised why I’d signed up for this in the first place. Here are a couple of videos that show what bumptop can do. You can sign up for private betas for pc and mac too. Think 3D visualisation. Think microsoft surface. Think touch screen surfaces. Think modelling of a user interface in a way analogous to our real life environment. Now think BumpTop.

Is the word you are looking for ‘awesome’?

I’ve downloaded BumpTop but have yet to use it. When I do I’ll post my impressions.

One thought on “BumpTop starts private beta

  1. I’m not convinced it’s going to make accessing or arranging data any easier – I thought it all looked a bit strained. For the current generation of single-input interfaces I suspect KDE’s folderview (http://www.kde.org/announcements/4.1/screenshots/plasma-folderview.png) is probably about the best we can do. After that, I certainly found Jeff Han’s interface where he demoed something similar to Bumptop but with multi-touch, arranging photos fairly compelling. I’d be interested to hear how you get on with Bumptop though.
