This article raises an interesting issue:
should etoys/scratch/etc be enhanced to handle not just multi-touch but
other iphone OS specific features when they are present? Eventually,
they won't be iphone/ipad-specific. Likewise, other company's products
might get specific features first. Should there be a way to auto-detect
such features if they are present and expose them to etoys/scratch users?
e.g. input from x/y/z/rotational accelerometers, GPS, compass, etc?
People ooh and ah about the White Rabbit's watch swinging in the
direction that the iPad is tilting. Imagine what could be done with
enhanced story telling if kids are able to use those features with
scratch or etoys?
