BUILD-IT is an up-and-running system putting at work highly intuitive, videobased interaction technology to support complex planning and configuration tasks. It makes state-of-the-art computing and visualisation available to all kinds of users, without requiring any special computer literacy. Based on real, tangible bricks as interaction handler, BUILD-IT represents a novelty to Human-Computer Interaction. With this tool, object manipulation and image display take place within the very same working area. Hence, new dimensions of prehension and direct response have been added to Human-Computer Interaction. Technology has a backstage position, whereas creativity and human communication within multidisciplinary expert teams is encouraged.
