Abstract

Pendaphonics is a tangible physical-digital-sonic environment and interactive system that motivates children and adults to be physically active and explorative. The development of this system presents a strategy for the design and evaluation of a low-cost, flexible, large scale tangible system that is engaging for children and adults alike. Pendaphonics has been installed in a public new media arts space, where over 200 people have interacted with it. Here, we describe Pendaphonics tangible interaction scenarios, including the broad potential of this system as a compositional and choreographic tool, an educational exhibit, and as an interface that facilitates playful interaction, exploration, discovery and creativity.
