Spongebob and Playdough Computer Interface for Children
One of the more fascinating presentations from 2014 IEEE International Conference on Computer Science and Education (ICCSE 2014) was "Effectiveness of Interactive Teaching Materials on Special Education and Assistive Technology" by Lin Chien-yu and Chen Shu-hua from National University of Tainan. They showed adapting low cost electronics for interactive interfaces. One interface allowed pieces of playdough and foam plastic (sponge) to be used as buttons for a game.
