Wonderful World

Dominik Schön (DE)

Wonderful World is inspired by an Augmented Reality sandbox and expands on this concept. Shadows and gestures of the hands are enough to change the world on the surface of the table. The palpation and shifting of the sand on the surface is also directly translated into the projection of a constantly changing world as a haptic interaction. The players can capture the projected light effects with the shadows of their hands, move them across the landscape and set them off. A piece of nature is created. Little by little the surface of the tabletop is changed by the hands of the other players, transforming the darkness of the area into a natural landscape.
