AbstractThis paper introduces TurTan, a tangible programming language for creative exploration inspired by Logo, which uses a tabletop interface with tangible objects. The aim of this project is to design a toy language for programming entertainment and creative purposes. Along this paper we also discuss some interesting technical issues we have found during its implementation such as tangible linking and angle mapping.
