Allison, Abel, Follmer, Sean and Raffle, Hayes (2009): TessalTable: tile-based creation of patterns and images. In: Proceedings of the 4th International Conference on Tangible and Embedded Interaction 2009. pp. 203-204. http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/1709886.1709923

In this paper we introduce the TessalTable, a collaborative play system for learning about tessellations and symmetry through augmented pattern blocks. Children use tiles to "pick up" a piece of an image or video. The tiles act as containers for visual content which can be arranged and rearranged anywhere on the application surface. The tile-based controls allow for simultaneous multi-user input. A preliminary study found that children understand and engage with the interface. The ability to arrange and rearrange dynamic images invites users to explore geometric patterns and connected motion.
