Augmented Reality Sandbox

Experience Augmented Reality

The AR Sandbox brings earth science to life by merging hands-on play with digital effects. It combines a real sandbox with a motion-sensing camera and a digital projector. As users shape the sand with their hands, the camera detects the changes and a computer projects colors depicting elevation, vividly illustrating the principles of topographic maps. Users can also create rainstorms, lakes and rivers, and immediately see how reshaping the sand surface changes the water flow.
