Tangible user interfaces for children
This poster describes the design and early evaluation of MusicPets. MusicPets allows children to store audio, such as (composed) tunes or recorded messages, on tangible containers embodied by soft toys. Results show that children enjoy creating tunes and appreciate the possibility to record them on physical objects so that they can later `show' them to others. They would also use MusicPets for exchanging messages and playing DJ using multiple prerecorded soft toys. MusicPets not only fosters musical creativity but also promotes collaboration among children. Keywords Children, tangible, musical, toys, kindergarten ACM Classification Keywords H.5.2 [Information Interfaces and Presentation]: User Interfaces ? Evaluation/methodology, User-centered design
