We introduce kickables: tangibles that users manipulate with their feet. While they maintain the great affordance of traditional tangibles, kickables scale to arbitrarily large spaces as kickables reside on the ground. This affordance makes kickables well-suited for large-scale walk-up installations, such as tradeshows or museum exhibits, as illustrated by our prototype installation on basic molecular chemistry shown in the figure above.
Kickables is a research project by Raf Ramakers, Esben W. Pedersen, Johannes Jasper, Sven Köhler, Aileen Pohl, Hannes Rantzsch, Andreas Rau, Patrick Schmidt, Christoph Sterz, Yanina Yurchenko supervised by Dominik Schmidt and Patrick Baudisch at the Human Computer Interaction Lab of Hasso Plattner Institute.
