What is the project?

In the EcoRaft Project, tablet PCs act as virtual rafts in a sea of real space that are maneuvered by participants to get plants and animals from thriving virtual islands to deforested ones. The islands are desktop PCs.

Interactive Education Paradigm

A novel orchestration of animation and networking techniques has made the EcoRaft Project an engaging model for enabling children to learn about elements of restoration ecology.

The techniques include combining IrDA with TCP/IP networking to allow tablet PCs to share autonomous mobile code with desktop PCs, using sound to maintain the illusion that objects are transferred between islands and rafts, and providing novel interactions between embodied mobile agents and participants.
