What is an interactive sandbox?
Let us recap briefly what our sandbox is all about. iSandBOX is a hardware-software complex that uses augmented reality technology turning an ordinary sandbox into a fantasy world. In this world, sand is not just a billion grains. In iSandBOX, sand comes to life depicting natural objects, phenomena, and diverse landscapes. Ordinary sand becomes magic and gives multiple education and game scenes. It happens due to the projector that transmits an image of game scenarios on the surface of the sand. The depth sensor captures the slightest changes in the landscape, so the image becomes dynamic, responding to fluctuations in the sand height. The iSandBOX computer contains up to 36 game modes; its powerful computer allows the image to respond without the slightest delay. That is what guarantees the full immersion effect. Below, you will find the pieces of advice we have prepared for you. They will help you select the suitable iSandBOX model and benefit to the maximum from it.
1. Choose the suitable model and find the best spot to install iSandBOX
Depending on the iSandBOX model, the required space for installation varies from 1.5 to 3 m². In kindergartens, sandboxes are typically placed in counseling offices or rooms for extracurricular activities. We offer a wide range of iSandBOX models: from a desktop version for individual lessons to a full-sized complex with which up to 12 kids can work simultaneously.
It is vital to select a suitable model for your preschool. Of course, it depends on many factors: usage purposes, the room space, the budget available, etc. Our managers will assist you to make the right choice.
