Interactive Sand Box

Wonderful for therapy, education and entertainment for children, adults and older adults. Combines the responsiveness and activity opportunities of interactive projection with the palpable experience of sand for a highly multi-sensory experience.

Interactive augmented reality allows users to transform sand into the earth’s surface with lakes, mountains, volcanoes and valleys; to dig up dinosaur fossils; to play ‘football’ and much, much more.

Loose materials such as sand allow imaginative play and creative activity whilst providing tactile sensations that promote fine motor skills, tactile perception and hand-eye coordination.

White frame as standard - other colours available upon request. Includes:

  • Table frame with metal reservoir for sand, laminated board top (to turn this into an interactive table), additional legs (to adjust the height) and projector arm
  • Projector with 3D depth sensor, USB and HDMI cables
  • Marble sand (recommended by therapists for motor skills development as especially mouldable)
  • 94 wooden sensor objects – for the Interactive table games
  • Wireless keyboard
  • Software featuring activities for sand and table.

Assembly and set up required on receipt - 2 people required. Telescopic legs are available separately for the Large option for wheelchair users - contact us for more information.

190kg, including 98kg of marble sand. Supplied in a crate. We recommend that this product is professionally installed as set up requires some time and competence.

 "This is a versatile interactive tool which can be adapted to accommodate different levels of physical and cognitive ability. Largely suitable for children and young people but will also appeal to older teenagers. The interactive table top allows for educational opportunities such as spelling and reading challenges which encompass hand eye co-ordination and object recognition. More challenging table top games include designing a city in which the user can include objects such as buildings to challenge topographical orientation and problem solving. All these activities can be undertaken one to one or as a group activity to foster collegiality and team work.

The sand box is an additional element which extends the activities to include more tactile input. Again games offer different levels of complexity and have broad enough themes to appeal to a range of interests. The quiz games require hand eye co-ordination, scanning and searching, and problem solving. For example, seeking out buried treasure requires spotting corners of the treasure chest sticking out of the sand then digging them out whereas digging out mines requires you to seek carefully then lift the mines out gently. The lakes and mountains, and volcano programmes are excellent opportunities for collaborative play as well as strategic problem solving. These activities can also be augmented with additional items such as play figures to increase the challenges of the task undertaken.

Overall, this is a versatile tool that can be used for immersive play as well as for therapeutic interaction. The multi-sensory components increase engagement and attention as well as providing a flexible level of sensory stimulation."
