Have fun with Arnie, QUT's AR (Augmented Reality) Sandpit!

Using digital interactive software developed by QUT, join us to find out how nature and engineering maintains healthy landscapes, and creates our ever-important water supply. Dig, mold, and build-up the landscape to simulate mountains, fields, lakes, dams and rivers. Place objects to catch water, make it rain, and dry it up.

You will also have the opportunity to see The Queensland Globe, a digital interactive experience featuring Queensland's stunning satellite imagery and rich data about our great state. The Queensland Globe is presented at Robotronica by QUT and the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines.

Please note: The Sandpit uses 100% non-toxic kinetic sand, containing synthetic polymers.
