%X The capacity to utilise FPGA designs in such a way that they
are compositional, mobile, and *interactive*, offers many
new possibilities. This holds true for both research and
commercial applications. With the system described here,
hardware becomes as easy to distribute as software and the
mediating links between the two domains allow for
manipulation of physical resources in real time. Designs are
no longer monolithic *images* downloaded at one time, but
mobile entities that can be communicated over a distance and
dynamically installed at run\-time many times and at many
places. Such twin domain designs can be as complex as a
processor, or as small in scale as a few logic gates. The
run\-time system, Reconnetics, provides an environment of
high\-level control over such elements, which requires
little knowledge of the underlying hardware technology.
