Google Adds 3D for Android Tablets

Google has acquired BumpTop, which enables 3D multitouch desktop on Windows and Mac computers, the company confirmed.

BumpTop uses "pile creation techniques" to shuffle and stack documents as if they were cards in a deck.

The app was originally created for use with a pen-style stylus; the startup added multitouch last September, looking to capitalize on the shift toward touch-screen interfaces by letting users move, zoom in and out on, and access documents with their fingers.
