The Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum will be reopening to the public on December 12, 2014 and Ideum is playing a big part in their improved visitor experience. Throughout the gallery, there will be interactive collections and exhibitions, complete with large projected capacitive (pro-cap) displays, custom designed and engineered by Ideum. (These designs are based on our existing line of multitouch tables.) Along with the team at Cooper Hewitt, we are working with some great partners including: Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Local Projects, among others.

The displays at the Cooper-Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum are the world’s first fully-integrated 4K Ultra High-Definition pro-cap multitouch tables that use stylus input.  There will be 55” and 84” tables throughout the museum that will allow visitors to utilize a specialized stylus “pen” to gather information and drawings as they visit the various exhibits.  Each table will allow several users the ability to gather information at the same time.  The 55” table allows six users and the 84” will allow eight users to simultaneously utilize the table and gather personalized information.

To learn more visit the Cooper-Hewitt website and The New York Times.
