Flutter makes an application for Mac and Windows machines that lets people control programs like iTunes and Quicktime by capturing gestures using the computer’s webcam.

We will be continuing our research at Google,” Flutter CEO Navneet Dalal announced Wednesday on the company’s website.

A Google spokeswoman said the company would be supporting Flutter’s research. The deal has already closed and terms were not disclosed.

Flutter’s team will be joining Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, Calif., to continue their research efforts.

The Flutter app, however, will remain operational. Through an extension to the Chrome browser, it also works with Google’s YouTube service, Netflix, Grooveshark, and Pandora.
