Webbles are the most recent form of IntelligentPad. Webbles are objects in a browser window that allow for direct manipulation by drag and drop. One may pick up any Webble and move it over any other one for operational combination. The new Webble is plugged into the previous one and data between them flow through predefined slots. Human users may freely reconfigure the slot connections of Webbles as necessary. Within the authors' adaptive interactive dynamic atlas project, historians have the historical data literally at their fingertips. Historical data have some visual appearance on the screen and may be directly manipulated by actions such as drag and drop. The professional research interface is accessible via any Web browser and, thus, allows for participation of a wide audience. Contemporary technologies are bringing science to private homes where families may playfully explore history in manifold ways.
