Augmented Reality SandBox is quite nice concept where you play with sand and a projector mounted on top of the sandbox projects constantly updating height-map on it. We've prepared a few installations.

Installations

FreezeFest 2012

This installation was created for DIY festival FreezeFest 2012. It used ad-hoc on-site construction, around 60kg of sand and SARndbox software (see below).

Software created by Oliver Kreylos for W.M. Keck Center for Active Visualization in the Earth Sciences, UC Davis Tahoe Environmental Research Center, Lawrence Hall of Science, and ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center. See http://idav.ucdavis.edu/~okreylos/ResDev/SARndbox/ for more info.

Calibration

It may be quite hard to find out how to calibrate for the first time, so i will document it here a bit

IAMap SandBox

WORK IN PROGRESS

CUstom reimplementation of AR Sandbox that is capable of running on less-advanced hardware than SARndbox (which requires quite decent graphics card), designed with ARM platform in mind (like Raspberry Pi or BeagleBoard).
