BumpTop – Your Desktop in 3D

Well this is certainly weird. The idea is you have a GUI that looks like a desk with your files laid out as documents. You can use pen movements (at least that what it says in the video, so appears to be running on Tablet PC) to do various things such as group documents together, stack them, throw them about or tag them to walls.

BumpTop

If it’s meant as a Windows desktop replacement then it wouldn’t be much use to me since I tend to keep mine empty. Also nothing in the demo’s showed how you identify a specific file. All you have are the icon images appearing. If you’ve got 10 Acrobat files, how do you know which is which?

Unfortunately there is nothing downloadable to try at the moment but I am very curious to see how it’ll work in practice.
