UTS launches iSandBOX worldwide
World's first interactive augmented reality sandbox for education and entertainment
iSandBOX consists of a sand reservoir, depth measurement sensor, computer and projector. The depth measurement sensor determines the distance to the sand surface. Then, the software processes the data and sends instructions to the projector, which highlights the sand surface. This amazing yet simple innovation creates images of blue water, red lava from volcanoes, green hills and many other objects, all in one sandbox.
By combining basic children's activity of playing with sand with augmented reality, iSandBOX helps kids improve their mental state, learn how the world works, and have genuine fun. It boosts child's creativity, critical thinking, communication skills and motor development.
iSandBOX has been tested by more than 100 schools and preschools in numerous countries. Right now UTS is opening regional branches worldwide to bring this innovative and creative solution to schools, kindergartens, museums, science centers and businessmen all over the world.
"iSandBOX is an amazing piece of equipment and what it does for children, in terms of stimulating their imagination and developing coordination and cognitive skills, is fantastic.", - says Sally Mackinnon, the Marketing Executive for the iSandBOX UK - "We're really excited about our official launch. The first iSandBOX in UK was installed for demonstrations in Aberdeen a few weeks ago and it's already creating quite a stir. We're now out and about speaking to schools, nurseries and educational centres about the benefits that iSandBOX can bring to children and we're looking forward to seeing the unit in action."
The role of interactive technology in education and entertainment has been proved to be important by the worldwide community - iSandBOX was showcased nationwide by Discovery Channel USA on June 10th, 2016.
