3 years & up. Take your sand and light play to the next level.
Engage your child's cognitive, social, and sensory development with this
innovative tool that transforms a regular sand table and projector into
a hands-on learning adventure! Using Augmented Reality technology, the
Illumination Station transfers realistic colors and life-like images
onto the sand for a mesmerizing sensory experience. Children will learn
about geography, topography, seasons, animal habitats, and more as they
create new worlds and explore interactive environments. Then, easily
switch into engaging physical activities by turning the projector around
to reveal the literacy, math, science, music, and more. This play
center offers hours of fun with never the same experience. Includes:
sand table, projector, light bulb, remote, and sand.
Using state of the art projection and 3D mapping technology,
the Illumination Station makes sand appear to transform into a dynamic
environment. It uses a depth sensing camera to read the surface of the play
area and a projector to alter the play environment in real time as students
play within it.
The Illumination Station also converts into a
touch-interactive projection that engages students across subject areas such as
math, English, science and more.
Absolutely! The electronic hardware can also be used to
create a floor or wall projection that allows children to engage in gross motor
activities in dozens of experiences.
