    We will have an AR Sandbox exhibit at a maker fair on March 18, 2018.

    If there are lots of people who want to play in the sandbox, what do you do?

    Do you make a reservation list? Do you issue tickets?

    I’ve seen the sandbox run at AWE2017 and people just walked to it and were patient and waiting for other people to make space. It didn’t create a line or a queue but rather a swarm, and it just managed itself.
    Those were adults though. It’s different if kids are involved.

    Lots of ways to control a crowd around this, but I’d say no matter which approach you take, most importantly be flexible and leave yourself time to teach, to explain, to answer questions. Don’t implement a system that stops you from having fun showing off your creation.

    Last 2 cents, if you make the visit a structured one where people should “do A, then try B, then achieve C” then you better control the time and when a person is done doing the things suggested they move along.
