>Has anybody worked on Hypercard-Mathematica interactive connection??

If I am interpreting the question correctly, the answer is a partial yes.
There is a project in the works at Wellesley College to use SuperCard in
developing a front-end for Mma for use in teaching calculus.  I have only
seen a short demo of the stack (called "Calculus Menus"), so I cannot tell
much more about its functionality.  I do, however, have a short description
from the developers, plus the developers' names and addresses:

"Calculus Menus for the Macintosh is a shell for Mathematica that we are
developing at Wellesley to allow students to use menus and dialog boxes
rather than Mathematica commands.  Each semester over 200 students use
these and several smaller-scale programs together with traditional calculus
texts in our Mathematics Graphics Classroom."
