I like this - thinking about the original LOGO experiment, which was a
carefully designed environment for children to learn programming - so
there was the Turtle, both an on-screen and a physical object, etc [1]

Being able to play with all the senses, and use sensors to manipulate
the environment - that's a great vision.

[1] Mindstorms by Seymour Papert is an excellent read, about "creating
a dignified mathematics for children" and the intellectual background
to LOGO.
