21st century sandbox

This augmented reality sandbox comes equipped with a Kinect 3D camera and a projector to project a real-time colored topographic map with contour lines onto the sand surface. The sandbox lets virtual water flow over the surface using a GPU-based simulation of the Saint-Venant set of shallow water equations.

Tl;dr – watch this, it’s awesome!
