Anand Agarawala is one half of the creative team behind the BumpTop desktop interface and co-founder of Bump Technologies. Drawing inspiration from the real world, BumpTop offers a fresh, new approach towards the computer’s desktop interface. Originally developed as Agarawala’s Master Thesis in Computer Science and Human Computer Interaction at the University of Toronto, this innovative desktop solution quickly gained attention on Digg, Slashdot, and PCWorld, and became the most watched video of software on YouTube ever. In addition to his strong background in HCI and Computer Science, Agarawala is committed to expressing himself creatively through hip hop culture and the production of video art and short films that have received recognition at film festivals, on television and online.
