Tangible Tech Collaborative: Has sandbox play finally become a place for inventive early childhood technology? Check out User Studio’s use of tapioca grains as the medium for tangible interface in children’s iPad explorations. As developers at User Studio describe their initial goal, “…we had one thing only on our minds: we wanted to build the simplest, least “techy”, most familiar interface possible for kids to play with.”  Those at User Studio “believe that haptics and non-standard touch interactions are under-rated learning tools.” We agree!
