I’ve linked to Dynamicland before; “a new computational medium where people work together with real objects in the real world, not alone with virtual objects on screens.” This is a long article about a crazy application for it; Geokit. It lets users search for locations, zoom in and out of maps, zoom on the zoom, overlay data, start from a printed map and lots more. Two thirds of the article go into the programming of the kit, do at least click through to the article though to read the first third and look at the short videos. Watching Dyamicland demos feels like it must have if you had the chance to visit [Xerox PARC](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/PARC_(company)) back in the day.
