Join us for sand play with a difference using the University of Sydney’s augmented reality sandbox.
Build mountains, valleys, rivers and even volcanoes using real sand and 3D visualisation technology.
Create your own miniature landscapes as you move the sand around and watch it interact with 3D topographical projections onto the terrain.
See how you can modify the Sydney cityscape to show the impact of changes to the geography.
Make it rain by spreading your hands over the landscape and watch as water fills the hollows to create new rivers and lakes.
This interactive experience is part of the Cartographica – Sydney on the map exhibition at Customs House. This new exhibition celebrates intriguing visual interpretations of our city’s landscape and the art of cartography.
The augmented reality sandbox represents the latest in technology for depicting and manipulating landscapes in 3D. It has been especially adapted for use for this exhibition.
This free activity is suitable for adults and children over 5 years old. Bookings are not required.
Presented by City of Sydney Library with the School of Civil Engineering at The University of Sydney.
