How to use?

Build something out of sand, and Sandbox 2.0 automatically converts it to a landscape. Construct a known landscape, like Lake Balaton or the Carpathian Mountains or make up your own. If you raise your hand over the sand, it will become a cloud, and rain will pour to the terrain. For sanitary reasons please wash your hands before and after playing.

What happens?

The surface of the sand is constantly scanned by an infrared camera, to be able to construct a digital 3D image of the sand. The digital image is then projected back to the sand with the appropriate colors indicating elevation on the relief map. Rain and water modeling uses a sophisticated technology based on real life physics, which means that the observed flow is as close to the real fluid movements as possible.
