    Search for "SEC Live Filings Digest" to find out more.
    Google (GOOG) has bought Flutter, a San Francisco-based startup founded three years ago that detects human hand motion. The noteworthy purchase means that Google will now likely use the technology in subsequent product releases like the Chromebook laptop line as well as handheld devices. Gesture-recognition technology has steadily increased its presence in technology, most notably first in the Nintendo Wii gaming console and most recently in the Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone. No details regarding the acquisition were released. Flutter is excited at the deal, with co-founder Navneet Dalal, who was a former Google employee, remarking on Flutter’s website that the company is excited to add to Google’s long-term success.
