I remember when I was a child I loved playing in the sandbox, and I was lucky too, because my neighbor was a truck driver, who regularly filled the sandbox with the clean river sand. Probably, many of you remember the pleasure of playing with the sand (for example, it is so popular to build the sand castles and sculptures at the beach), therefore, the researchers at the University of California are not exception. Namely, they have created a high-tech sandbox, adding to the normal process of playing with the sand a little augmented reality.
The French are preparing to release a little book, which is attached to a paper balloon, and the iPad application allows flying on this balloon, controlling the direction and force of the wind.
It is evident that they are actively concerned with new interacting ways with technology. In addition to the toy they have “Rorschach cards”, “(i)Pirates” with less traditional augmented reality and the source coded “The Night of the Living Dead Pixels”.
