The Magix Series of Playful Learning Environments
rationale and demos of constructive-dialogic interactivity
Strohecker, C. (Mitsubishi Electric Research Laboratories)

      In this interaction design, constructions take the form of a dialog between player and system. Areas of the dynamic interface shrink and grow to reflect turn-taking as the constructing proceeds. In the two example projects, players compose graphical forms and observe effects that emerge as the forms activate and combine in a larger context.
