The augmented reality (AR) sandbox allows users to create topography models by shaping real sand, which is then augmented in real time by an elevation color map, topographic contour lines, and simulated water. The system teaches geographic, geologic, and hydro-logic concepts such as how to read a topography map, the meaning of contour lines, watersheds, catchment areas, levees, and much more.
This fantastic DIY Kit includes everything you need to build your own tabletop AR Sandbox exhibit besides the sand and the sandbox. You build your own box either from your own design or by following our sandbox construction instructions.
