Unveiling of Augmented Reality Sand Table

Monday, March 9, 2020

The Flint Hills Discovery Center (FHDC) is excited to announce the new addition of an Augmented Reality Sand Table that will debut this Spring Break (March 9-13). The community is invited to visit the FHDC from 10 AM-5 PM during that week to experience this new interactive display for the first time.
The 40” wide x 30” deep x 8” high wooden box is filled with fine white sand. Guests can mold the sand by hand and watch the landscapes come alive with an elevation color map and topographic contour lines. Build mountains, volcanoes, rivers and more. This hands-on display encourages guests of all ages to get creative and build landscapes big and small.
The AR Sand Table will be open to the public only during select times. A full schedule will be announced soon.
