In my experience, there are a few things that all kids love: sandboxes and dinosaurs. Combining the two seemed like it would be a fun experience while also giving kids the opportunity to both learn and create.

This is a project co-created with Ji Hyun Lee.

How it works

S-box is made using a Kinect and a projector. Using OpenFrameworks, we programed the Kinect to measure the depth of the sand. Different depths yielded different colors.
