29 Sugar has since grown into a more widely usable low-ressource desktop
30 environment for kids.
32 Squeak Etoys was inspired by LOGO, PARC-Smalltalk, Hypercard, and
33 starLOGO. It is a media-rich authoring environment with a simple,
34 powerful scripted object model for many kinds of objects created by
35 end-users. It includes 2D and 3D graphics, images, text, particles,
36 presentations, web-pages, videos, sound and MIDI, etc. It includes the
37 ability to share desktops with other Etoy users in real-time, so many
38 forms of immersive mentoring and play can be done over the Internet.
