The Minkowski product can be viewed as a higher dimensional version of interval arithmetic. We discuss a collection of geometric constructions based on the Minkowski product and on one of its natural generalizations, the quaternion action. We also will present some topological facts about these products, and discuss the applications of these constructions to computer aided geometric design.
