Storyboard is an interactive, collaborative desk for children to help bring their school assignments to life.  More specifically, we’re implementing an example module.  In this module, students can collaborate with one another to animate a scene prepared by the teacher.

Students interact with the table by manipulating and designing physical objects.  At this point, the output is visual and sound-based, but we could imagine ‘smart’ primitives like Toio or the Transform topography being applied to this setup.  More specifically to our application implementation, by using cut out pieces of construction paper, kids can design and assign their own sounds to shapes, can move the pieces around, and don’t risk damaging expensive equipment (construction paper is way less expensive than a computer monitor).
