Abstract: Construction of LEGO models is a popular hobby, not only among children and young teenagers, but also for adults of all ages. Following the technological evolution and the integration of computers into the everyday life, several applications for virtual LEGO modelling have been created. However, these applications generally have interfaces based on windows, icons, menus and pointing devices, the so-called WIMP interfaces, thus being unnatural and hard-to-use for many users. Taking advantage of new trends in of interaction paradigms we developed an innovative solution for virtual LEGO modelling using a horizontal multi-touch surface. To achieve better results, we selected the most common virtual LEGO applications and performed a comparative study, identifying advantages and disadvantages of each one. In this paper we briefly present that study and describe the application developed upon it.
