To my knowledge, the AR Sandbox has one major benefit over the SimTable: it has a 3D camera that captures the real sand surface in real time. SimTable — unless they upgraded it recently — does not, so it has to rely on the users to approximate the projected topography with the sand manually, without any feedback. If the approximation is off, subsequently projected color imagery will be distorted and misleading.

I am working on a guided method to recreate existing terrain for SARndbox v2.0, which will include the ability to project aerial photography or other color imagery without distortion, but we don’t have specific plans to add other major functionality included in SimTable. I’m expecting that they’ll release a new version with 3D camera support and real-time feedback soonish, now that the path is cleared.
