Our Animated Sandbox is an exciting and educational interactive experience in which users can change and redesign habitats and topography. Users will explore, create, and learn by using their imaginations and our augmented reality sandbox. 


How it works: Users will pile up and dig out sand, while an interactive sensor detects the changes made to the sand and the projection adjusts accordingly in real time. Augmented reality layers will make mountains, plains, and bodies of water, teaching users about topography and different environments. Animals and objects will react to the changes and roam where they are found in their natural habitats. This interactive tabletop sandbox is perfect for schools, museums, science centers, and more! 

Our augmented reality sandbox is a best-seller and can be seen in many museums and educational centers all around the world. Our sandbox can be customized to many sizes, and all of our themes are bright, exciting, and have enhanced graphics. We can also work directly with clients to customize a theme. 


Breeze Creative is dedicated to ensuring our products are designed and installed for longevity and guaranteed success. 


“The Animated Sandbox is our first foray into augmented reality at the museum and it’s a delight to kids of all ages and abilities. The therapeutic sand and comforting nature of the exhibit fits right in with our inclusive ethic as well as our desire to continue using innovative technology to teach."

What is an AR Sandbox?

Our augmented reality sandbox combines the classic feel of a playground sandbox with the advanced technology of augmented reality and provides a one-of-a-kind experience. A custom-made table is filled with sand and a projector mounted to the ceiling displays one of our five interactive themes onto the sand. A motion sensor attached to the projector will detect any movements and changes to the sand, and the projection will react in real time and display an extraordinary sight.

Educational Benefits 

The educational benefits of an augmented reality sandbox are endless and can be a great addition to any exhibit or classroom. Augmented reality layers teach users about topography and how shifting and moving the sand can change the layers of Earth and impact the ecosystem.


All of our themes include different geographical landmarks, including mountains, valleys, and rivers, and an abundance of plants and animals. The themes also provide an outstanding visual augmented reality experience. Our best-selling marine theme shows users how shifting the sand can cause trenches, underwater volcanoes, and reveal new marine life.

Our AR sandbox can also provide a therapeutic experience as the soft grains of the sand help with sensory and touch.
