AR Sandbox

We have a very cool temporary addition to the Edge, an augmented reality sandbox that one of our patrons built and is making available to us for a week or two.

We will hold a drop-in session where you can explore the sandbox features on Wednesday, May 29th, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

White Plains resident Aaron Couts has generously made his Augmented Reality sandbox available to the Library. The AR sandbox, an open source project developed at the University of California, Davis ( is made up of a video projector, a Microsoft K'nect 3D sensor, and of course a computer with the software developed at UC@Davis. Unlike most augmented reality systems, the AR sandbox requires no special goggles to see the AR effects, a feature that makes for a much more engaging and interactive experience among everyone who sees it—not just one person wearing goggles.
