Interactive Sand Box
Carasso Science Park
This marine sand box is a multi-user interactive experience in which visitors cooperate in changing and redesigning the topography of the sand in the box. Using a simple interface, the display adds another level of media and dimension to this familiar children’s game. A marine environment consisting of various creatures and plants is projected onto white sand. When visitors play in the sandbox, they create mountains and hills, changing the space right before their eyes by means of projection –a sensor installed above the box maps the area anew, analyses the change and expresses it by projecting marine creatures in the sea and plants on land. The combination of physical surroundings and unseen technology creates an unforgettable experience.
