Description faces, information visualization, information physics, local tools. We describe local tools, a general interaction technique that replaces traditional tool palettes. A collection of tools sit on the worksurface along with the data. Each tool can be picked up (where it replaces the cursor), used, and then put down anywhere on the worksurface. There k a tool-box for organizing the tools. These local tools were implemented in Pad++ as part of KidPad, an application for children.
