    Not public yet, still in my basement, but there’s an operational AR sandbox in Whitehorse, Yukon.,-135.0467364,6z?hl=en

    No idea yet how it’s going to be public, I don’t work for a school or museum or anything, but it’s just too cool not to build and share!



    Hi there !
    A group of students and I, from the Faculty of Science and Technology of Tangier (A University in Tangier, Morocco –, have built an AR Sandbox. We’re still working on it and are currently using a regular projector which doesn’t cover the entire sand surface of our sandbox. But we will be switching to a short throw projector as soon as we can get our hands on one ! Otherwise, it’s quite operational.

    We’ve created a Facebook page to get other students interested in the project and keep them updated on the progress we’re making :

    Full address of the University :

    Faculté des Sciences et Techniques,
    Ancienne Route de l’Aéroport, Km 10, Ziaten.
    BP: 416
    Tangier, Morocco


    Thank you so much for you work and effort. It truly is exceptional !



    Add one for ours at Canisius High School in Buffalo NY.

    Piece from a local TV station, but before we upgraded to a true video card (a Geforce 610 which works well for what we use it for).



    I have one I built in my garage in Long Island NY. all the kids in the neighborhood come to play and learn.

    Mirrors, especially beveled ones, are a pain to work with, it caused the topography to be off by about an inch.



    Just got ours completed at the Milton Hershey School. We are not “public” but we could possible host visitors from other educational venues if contacted.

    Love it – Thank you for making this an open source project.

    I made one for my 3 years old son and his friends in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
    Unfortunately, it is not public, it currently sits in my living room.
    Thank you Olivier for all the efforts you put in the code and forum.

    We have one about an hour North of Seattle at the Children’s Museum of Skagit County.

    Google Map

    We (Interpreting Technology) provided it at only the cost of supplies and maintain it bi-weekly at no cost (adding more sand, re-calibration, cleaning, etc.) It’s a very popular exhibit!

    Quick Edit: It would be nice to have a way to filter the map to show currently available public ones. I know the one listed in Seattle isn’t current publicly accessible, though it was at a conference. As far as we know, ours is the only “anyone can come and play with it” one in the entire Pacific Northwest.

    I have an AR sandbox in
    Marquette Heights, Illinois

    It is currently private but hopefully in the future it will be publicly accessible!

    Thank you to those who put all the time in to this project and for making it easily available for regular dads like me to find!

    We are a small engineering firm and have the sandbox installed in the reception area. We can show it off to a small group of visitors if they contact us to set up a time.

    Three cheers to Oliver and all who have helped make this awesome technology available!



    Hi Oliver

    I have built an AR sandbox for my geography class at Nagle Catholic College, Geraldton, Western Australia.
    We are a school of about 1400 students located in a small coastal town.



    The Saint Joseph Museums just opened an exhibit featuring the history of the region’s historic 500 year flood of 1993. The centerpiece is an AR sandbox allowing visitors to understand topography and waterflow.
