Augmented Reality Sandbox
Playing in the sandbox is no longer simply for kids. The augmented reality sandbox is a hands-on exhibit that utilizes the Microsoft Kinect's motion and depth sensor to display an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water. Mold the sand by hand or use some of the sandbox toys and the landscape comes to life in real time! The sandbox is available 10am-6pm, Monday through Friday or by appointment. Contact the Digital Scholarship Lab with any questions.
