On August 28, 2019, Ideum opened its doors for a comprehensive New Mexico Tech Council tour. Our guests got a sneak peek of our dedicated Usability Lab, clean rooms, a suite of 3D printers used for fabricating custom tangible objects and other materials, state-of-the-art tools and equipment, and a series of fully optimized workspaces and design studios. Creative Director Jim Spadaccini also discussed our unique and patented manufacturing process.
In the Usability Lab, visitors were invited to experience a wide range of Ideum’s multitouch tables and custom interactive applications. Primarily used by our Media Systems and Creative Services groups, this flexible space allows us to mock up and test large-scale installations involving video walls, immersive projection mapping exhibits, and other technologies.
In Ideum’s’ main Workshop, our hardware experts produce carefully-crafted multitouch tables and touch walls for customers in the US and all over the world. The Usability Lab and Workshop are key features of Ideum’s 27,500 square feet of exhibit design and production space in historic Corrales, just a few minutes north of Albuquerque.
In addition to offering tours to local groups, Ideum launched its Technology for Our Community program last year. The program supports local New Mexico nonprofits by donating touch tables and displays to strengthen our communities and provide new educational opportunities for local children. To date, Ideum has donated eight touch products to Albuquerque-metro nonprofits since the program’s launch.
