Bump Technologies told fans of its 3D desktop computer software on Monday that it has been bought by Google.
The Canada-based startup is behind BumpTop, a program crafted to make computer screens appear more similar to real desktops where boxes can be moved or stacked using gestures or a stylus.
"More than three years ago, we set out to completely change the way people use their desktops," Bump said in a message on its website.
"We're excited to announce that we've been acquired by Google!"
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
BumpTop was created by a University of Toronto student as a masters thesis project.
