Google has gobbled up another promising young company.
The Internet search giant confirms its recent acquisition of Flutter, a startup famous for fashioning a gesture-based music controller for iTunes.
Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed to NativeMobile.
“When we started three years ago, our dream to build a ubiquitous and power-efficient gesture recognition technology was considered by many as just ‘a dream,’ not a real possibility,” says Navneet Dalal, Flutter’s CEO. “Since then, we have strived to build the best machine vision algorithms and a delightful user experience.”
“Today, we are thrilled to announce that we will be continuing our research at Google,” Dalal concluded. “We share Google’s passion for 10x thinking, and we’re excited to add their rocket fuel to our journey.”
Despite the acquisition, Flutter says users will be able to continue using the app.
“We’re really impressed by the Flutter team’s ability to design new technology based on cutting-edge research,” a Google rep stated publicly after Flutter spilled the beans about its buyer. “We look forward to supporting and collaborating on their research efforts at Google.”
