Abstract:

An immersive visual programming system enables a programmer to visualize and interact with program elements as though they were physical objects. These objects represent either algorithmic components or data structures. Their size, shape, color and position provide visual clues as to their current state anor purpose. Programming in the system includes assembling the components into detailed program structures. Many of the components have moving parts, and a completed program is machine-like in appearance. Execution sets the program into motion, and data components flow through it to provide the programmer with an intuitive understanding of program flow and data interaction.
