In BumpTop, documents behave as three-dimensional blocks lying on a virtual table. The user can position the blocks on the desktop using the stylus or mouse. Makes extensive use of the physical effects of launch and blows that are applied to documents when they interact in a more realistic experience. The blocks can be stacked in ways defined. Multiple selection is via a LassoMenu, making this tool is used with a line around the item and then the most common tasks are displayed in a menu type cake. BumpTop is currently compatible with Windows XP / Vista, with versions for Mac / Linux are planned for the future.
