KinectSandbox Additional Modules

We developed extra modules to expand the functionality of our software and make it more fun to use!

AR-DISCOVERY Game

Many things can be dug up from the sand. Ancient vases, pirate treasures… but also the alphabet?

That’s right! Our Discovery module is a great example of learning through play. It combines tactile interaction with visual cognition and lots of fun. Carefully remove the sand to uncover a new letter or number every time. Tested and approved by a panel of young experts 🙂

For more adventure-hungry users we recommend the Archeology mode and the suprises it brings. Will it be a fossil, or maybe a greek vase? Be careful not to spoil it! After spending hundreds or thousands of years underground, the items become fragile and will break and turn red if you dig too deep. Difficulty can be adjusted in the application settings.

Optional: you can adapt the Discovery module to better match your facility! We will prepare additional models on your demand, including real-life exhibits. Furthermore, the user interface can be re-designed for an even more satisfying fit.

AR-BALL Game

The objective is to guide a virtual ball from start to finish, destroying all targets and avoiding obstacles along the way. To do so, you will need to shape the sand to form a track. Easy as it sounds, it turns out to be a great and fun challenge! The ball will only run downhill, so the track needs to be well-planned. If you make it too steep, it will jump out, too flat and it gets stuck!

With endless possibilities of shaping the sand and difficulty increasing with each level, the game never fails to amuse. Gameplay: https://youtu.be/W4QfSBSuE4E

Apart from the obvious entertainment aspect of this module, it can be used to enhance spatial cognition and teach basic physics principles.

PARADISE ISLAND

Take a break from everyday life and give free rein to your imagination.

Create a virtual lagoon, idyllic atols and peaceful beaches. You can change the terrain level as you build your paradise and go from archipelago to Atlantis in a matter of seconds! After you create the environment, land and sea creatures, such as colorful fish, will start to appear. The islands will start to blossom and tropical palms will sprout.

Feel free to visit the wonderland! Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sierRzBmXR4

Augmented Reality Sanbox - Standard Model Touchscreen

Touch screen module

Touchscreen module is a software extension that allows you to control the application while it’s running via easy-to-use interface. The set of parameters available on the touchscreen will let you fully customize your sandbox and adjust it whenever needed. Some of the accessible settings will drastically improve functionality of your device, while others will make it even more fun to use!

If you decide to purchase other modules, they will also be accessible from the touchscreen’s roll-up menu.

You can read more about all touchscreen features here.

Terrain model export to .FBX

To immediately export terrain shape data, press the “+” button on numeric keypad/keyboard. If you are using our touchscreen feature, there is an individual ‘Export’ page in the interface with a convenient export button. The saved file is .fbx format (shape without materials and textures) and has its own unique name – date and time. By default files are saved on an external flash drive.

For expert users: destination folder for saved files can be changed in ‘GlobalSettings’ file in application folder.

Exported model can be used to create 3D prints!
This module contains installation of an additional usb port.
