Embodied, physical interaction can improve learning by making abstractions concrete. Meanwhile, online courses and interactive lesson plans have increased education access and versatility. Haptic technology could integrate these benefits, but requires both low-cost hardware and accessible software. We combine low-cost DIY devices like the HapKit with new, accessible software that enables students to creatively explore haptic environments without writing code.
