The goal of this project was to develop a real-time integrated augmented reality system to physically create topography models which are then scanned into a computer in real time, and used as background for a variety of graphics effects and simulations. The final product is supposed to be self-contained to the point where it can be used as a hands-on exhibit in science museums with little supervision.
In order to get this incredible effect, a Microsoft Kinect 3D camera, powerful simulation and visualization software, and a data projector are used.
Check out the sandbox in action below! It is truly something that should be used in every school! What an amazing way to learn, hands on! You can check out all the information from the developer of this incredible creation here.
