We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where we work and live. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
Sandpit created a suite of fun interactive exhibits for the Australian Sports Museum
These four playful digital experiences – suited to both kids and adults – allow visitors to learn about the rules and the history of cricket and horse-racing. We collaborated with illustrators Chris Edser and Nick Lewis.
The challenge of this project was to create physically robust experiences that could withstand forceful interaction from school groups and over-excited cricket tragics.
We created a huge interactive cricket pitch projection. Visitors can tap players on the pitch to learn more about different fielding positions. And they can learn cricket rules and umpiring signals by tapping on a very officious koala umpire.
Our Headliners experience introduces visitors to famous and infamous moments in cricketing history – from the Bodyline Ashes series to Shane Warne’s 700th wicket. Select a player from the Where’s Wally-style illustration on the massive touchscreen to discover their story.
Remember the iconic Test Match board game? This experience sees visitors manoeuvring giant Test Match-style figurines around a cricket pitch on the museum’s floor. Move your figurine to a new position on the pitch to hear cricket sounds and stories, as well as interviews with famous cricketers.
A Day at the Races sees visitors racing their own horses in a virtual horserace. First, visitors decorate their own racehorses on sheets of paper with coloured pencils. These pictures then magically appear on a huge digital projection screen. Race your friends and win a trophy!
