BumpTop Desktop

Posted on June 26, 2006


BumpTop aims to enrich the desktop metaphor with expressive, lightweight techniques found in the real world.

I love this desktop interface prototype. File names don't seem to be that obvious though. I normaly organise my desktop by file type, because it's easier to remember that I'm looking for say, a quicktime movie that I downloaded than to remember the first letter of it's filename. Looking for all files of one type on the desktop seems to involve a number of steps.

Read the in-depth PDF publication. Here's the demo video on Google Video.

I'd say it has a practical application for mp3 collections. Use album art for the folder/CD case texture and, voila, there you go. Pretty intuitive. Probably wouldn't even need the filename to be as obvious in such an instance.

Here, though, it leaves me a little cold.
