    Abstract

    Playgrounds (real or virtual) are universal areas where most people learn to play, interact, engage, immerse to unlearn and relearn
    repeatedly in order to get more fundamental understanding and insights on their creativity, communication and collaboration patterns
    with others. Consequently, finding out more about oneself in the process. This paper connects research and development of hybrid
    design tool environments with play, gaming, and gamification strategies and methods for application in multiple domains. We present
    a playful tool, game environment and preliminary case study from our ongoing research and experimentation in hybrid design tools
    and environments (HDTE).
