    I got the Santastic sand from Office Max. I manage to get free shipping. Very heavy, therefore, shipping could be expensive. It took about 7 days to arrive.

    I did lots of my preliminary testing on a NUC (first generation). It is possible to install and run as a preliminary version. However, the calculations is a computation hog such that the fans come on a few minutes after the Sarndbox program starts. As soon as you stop the program, it will eventually turn off. I eventually moved it over to a I7 w/NVida graphics card. I would say it was good enough to start with.

    Thanks so much for this demo. I have been doing STEM events with it and it has been a blast. Some features are:
    1. Is there a way to control the motor on the Kinect sensor for fine tuning? Kids do bump the sensor and I have to readjust it. Moving it manually has large jumps.
    2. A means of changing the width of the color while it is running. Some colors are a bit wide and too thin. I have to keep changing the boxlayout file and restart over and over. I understand the RGB colors, however, not the other fields. Documenting this would be helpful.

    This link:

    Stated that the in Step 5, the README document instructed to select points as:
    LL, LR, UL, UR
    However, the video showed the point selection as:
    LL, LR, UR, UL

    The correct selection is the README document.

    With this modification, I was able to get the green target.

    My last issues was when I ran the ./SARndbox (with no parameters). The contour lines
    were not in alignment with projector. The projection was inverted.

    This link: http://doc-ok.org/?p=164

    Stated to pass a parameter to the SARndbox program as follows:

    ./SARndbox -fpv

    I did not find this specified in the README.

    I am now up and running….
