Pixel Materiali ("Physical Pixels" in Italian) is a physical play environment which enables children to create pixel-like animations, and through this process to understand the basics of digital images and animation. Pixel Materiali is designed as a simple, highly intuitive system in which children interact with physical tiles while technology - in the form of camera and computer - is evident and understandable, but remains in the periphery of the experience. This paper reports the motivations, design considerations and outcome of using Pixel Materiali with children.
