BumpTop is a desktop environment supporting normal behavior of a real-world desk. It is aimed at stylus interaction, making it more suitable for tablet PCs and palmtops. It was created at the University of Toronto as Anand Agarawala's Masters Thesis. Anand Agarawala also gave a presentation at the TED conference about his idea. The 1.0 version was released on April 8, 2009, along with a fully featured pro version that is a paid upgrade. On April 30, 2010 the author announced that BumpTop was being discontinued and that they were taking the software " an exciting new direction..."  Two days later on May 2, it was announced that the company had been acquired by Google.

In BumpTop, documents are described by three-dimensional boxes lying on a virtual desk. The user can position the boxes on the desk using the stylus or mouse. Extensive use of physics effects like bumping and tossing is applied to documents when they interact, for a more realistic experience. Boxes can be stacked with well-defined gestures. Multiple selection is performed by means of a LassoMenu, which fluidly combines into a single stroke the act of lasso selection and action invocation via pie menus. BumpTop currently supports Windows XP/Vista/7, and a version for Mac OS X/Linux was released into private beta on Jan. 18th, 2010. The Mac edition eschews the pie menu in favor of a more normal selection menu
