Following on from the further work laid out in the Instructiblocks ICED paper, the Instructiblocks kit has has had an update ready for a new participant study.

The reader has now been encased in a LEGO case, with the Processing code rewritten to describe the new study. It has also been made much more user friendly and in-line with common interface design practices.

The experiment will consist of three tasks asking the participant to build a spaceship following three different sets of rules: class based rules (relating bricks of the same type), system based rules (relating bricks to the overall spaceship) and then class and system based rules combined.
