THE PROJECT.........................

Sandpit created a suite of digital interactives for the renewal of the Australian Sports Museum, which opened in 2020. 

Collaborating with illustrators Chris Edser and Nick Lewis, we created playful, tangible interactives that allow visitors to discover the worlds and histories of cricket and horseracing. 

Law and Field Positions allows visitors to bring to life a series of cricket players and their umpire to learn the rules of cricket, using custom designed proximity sensors embedded in the wall. 

Inspired by ‘Where’s Wally/Waldo’ style illustration, Headliners depicts famous and infamous moments from cricketing history, which users can select to discover the story behind them. And Test Match Figures takes the iconic board game figurines of the same name and turns them into giant objects that can be maneuvered in the space to activate sound. 

And finally, A Day at the Races allows users to decorate an illustrated horse on a sheet of paper, and magically digitise and send it to a large interactive horse race to see if they can win the trophy!
