Last night, at the American Association of Museums Annual Conference MUSE Awards in Los Angeles, our Electromagnetic Spectrum 100″ Multitouch Table Exhibit, developed with Adventure Science Center, won a bronze AAM MUSE award in the Interactive Kiosk category. We are honored to have been selected. Congratulations to the Adventure Science Center team and congrats to all of the MUSE Award winners.
Below is a video of the exhibit which we released last fall. I wrote a case study about the EM Spectrum exhibit that is available on the ExhibitFiles website; see “Space Imaging Multitouch Multiuser.”
Next week will be a busy one as we will be exhibiting at the American Association of Museums (AAM) conference in LA and attending the Society for Information Design (SID) in Seattle.
If you’re attending AAM please stop by booth #1219 and check out our MT-50 Multitouch Table with a clear plexi-glass front panel. We’re also showing off some of our custom applications on the new 3M 22″ multitouch display. On Sunday night, we will attend the AAM MUSE Awards and find out if our EM Spectrum exhibit 100″ Multitouch Table we developed with Adventure Science Center is a winner.
If you’re attending the AAM Monday night party, you can check out our multitouch table in action at The Getty! They developed a custom exhibit using our own GestureWorks framework for Flash. The Getty’s Iris blog has a story about the exhibit, see: Exploring Los Angeles on a Multitouch Table.
On Wednesday night, off to Seattle for the SID annual conference. Thursday is The Future of Touch & Interactivity Conference, with keynotes from multitouch “rock stars” Bill Buxton, Principle Researcher from Microsoft and Jeff Han from Perceptive Pixel. It should be an interesting day.
Tonight a group from Ideum headed up to Santa Fe for the New Mexico Technology Council’s Tech Ex Awards. The awards celebrate technological achievement and innovation by New Mexico companies and individuals.
We were the only organization that were finalists for two Solution Innovation awards; one for our multitouch Flash framework GestureWorks, and another for our EM Spectrum 100″ multitouch table exhibit. We were in illustrious company, as Intel, HP, APS, and others were also nominated. Last year, we won a NM Tech Award for our first-generation multitouch table.
Only four awards were given and GestureWorks was one of them! Congratulations to all of the winners and nominees.
The New Mexico Technology Excellence awards recognize “exceptional individual and organizational excellence in technology throughout the State.” We’re honored that two of our projects, the 100″ multitouch table exhibit and GestureWorks (our multitouch framework for Flash & Flex), are finalists for the awards.
Sponsored by the New Mexico Technology Council, the NM TechEX awards help to fund technology education for K-12 students in New Mexico. This year’s awards focus on two categories: Solution Innovation, for novel technologies that have potential for future impact, and Solution Impact, focusing on solutions that have already had a demonstrable impact on an individual or community level.
We’re glad to be a part of continuing efforts to build the technology community in New Mexico, and look forward to seeing everyone at the ceremony May 6.
We just learned that the KQED Quest website won the Best Use of Web 2.0 / New Media Award at the Jackson Hole Wildlife Film Festival. We worked closely with the KQED Quest team to develop this site, which makes extensive use of Google Maps and Flickr photos “mashed” into visually rich map applications.
Last night Ideum was one of nine organizations recognized at the New Mexico Technology Council’s Fourth Annual TechEx Awards. Sponsored in part by New Mexico Business Weekly, the awards were held at the Hyatt Regency in Albuquerque.
