This amazing Augmented Reality Sandbox uses 3-D visualization applications and a hands-on exhibit combining a real sandbox, virtual topography, and water. Using a closed loop of a Microsoft® Kinect™ 3-D camera, powerful simulation, Linux® computer, and Benq® data projector, the sandbox allows students to create topographic models by shaping real sand, which is then augmented in real time by an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water and lava.

This amazing Augmented Reality Sandbox uses 3-D visualization applications and a hands-on exhibit combining a real sandbox, virtual topography, and water. Using a closed loop of a Microsoft® Kinect™ 3-D camera, powerful simulation, Linux® computer, and Benq® data projector, the sandbox allows students to create topographic models by shaping real sand, which is then augmented in real time by an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water and lava.

The system teaches geographic, geologic, and hydrologic concepts, such as how to read a topographic map, the meaning of contour lines, watersheds, catchment areas, levees, and much more. It can be used to teach history and explain complex geopolitical concepts, as well as used for special-needs children. The sandbox comes complete with the box, camera, projector, wire management, and a laptop with instructions to load the visualization software. The box itself is made of solid oak and oak plywood, and moves on heavy-duty locking casters. A wire management system keeps the cords from interfering with the box. There is a shelf to hold the laptop while in use, which folds away with a collapsible hinge. Detailed instructions for downloading and calibrating the software and for running the program are included. Note: Sand not included. Sandtastik® Sparkling White Play Sand (250 lb) is recommended. Dimensions: 42" W x 32" D x 85" H; wt, 95 lb.
