MCI: Short Paper (Poster)
To allow researchers in exploring the use of active tangibles in different tabletop scenarios, affordable and easy-to-use rapid prototyping tools are needed. This paper presents the design and implementation of active tangibles that are based on a microcontroller based development platform called Kniwwelino. They are wirelessly connected via WiFi and can be programmed in Arduino or using a block-based visual programming language. We present the details of our implementation, propose a scenario of use, and describe our findings gained from the implementation of this scenario.
