Life of a Jackal

Another day a new beginning

bumptop physical desktop


an extension of the classic desktop metaphor such that files can be loosely arranged, piled, sorted, flipped through like pages of a book, etc. objects can be casually dragged & tossed around, influenced by physical characteristics such as friction & mass, much like we would manipulate lightweight objects in the real world.
Bumptop allows users to use the strategies they employ in the real world to convey information about the objects they own. another goal is to support casual organization of information in a manner where users are not forced to commit to categorization, such as the immediate naming & filing of documents.
