Although a current hot topic, tangible user interfaces (TUIs) have been studied for quite some time. One particular kind of TUI has been investigated repeatedly: during the past 20 years several groups have developed intelligent' building blocks that can self-describe the geometric structures into which they are assembled. These computational construction kits (CCKs) give users an extremely intuitive way to express 3D geometry, and have been used for a variety of dierent geometric modeling and design applications. In this panel we will review the development of CCKs, from such systems to the most recent, and speculate about future developments. The panelists will present and demonstrate artifacts from several CCKs, most of which have not been shown previously at SIGGRAPH, CHI, UIST, or I3D.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
