World of Sand is a mesmerising Zen-like sandbox toy originally from the Japanese website, DOFI-BLOG. Combining the many materials leads to a myriad of possibilities.
Salt and water combine to form salt water, which sinks below pure water. Heating up salt water causes it to split back into salt water and steam. Steam rises and condenses, eventually forming water droplets. Plants drink water and grow, but die if exposed to salt water. And that's just three of the nineteen materials available for you to draw.
The huge iPad screen gives you more room to play. The controls are effortless, and will never take you away from your creations.
