Google purchases Toronto-based BumpTop

Toronto-based Bump Technologies, who make the popular BumpTop product, is now part of the Google family.

The maker of an innovative 3D user interface made the announcement earlier today on its website.  In fact, that’s all there is on their website.  There are no more links.  Here’s the announcement

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.

According to the Wellington Financial Blog, the deal looks to be in the $30-$40 million range.
