Once a year we tidy up the ristras, tell the braying donkeys next door to keep it down, and leave the bistro lights burning long into the evening as we welcome visitors to Ideum’s annual open house. This year, over 150 guests made their way to our offices to see the latest and greatest from Ideum, and we had plenty to share.
Guests were welcomed into our Prototyping and Usability lab to check out an array of our newest multitouch hardware and creative software solutions.
Hadn’t had the chance to make it to the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian in Washington DC over the past few months? Not to worry! Visitors were able to experience the magic of our Exploring Cusco interactive in all its 84” glory right here in Corrales.
Guests explore the ancient city of Cusco on one of Ideum’s 84″ multitouch tables.
We had staff at the ready to demonstrate how our proprietary fiducial technology works on our newest 55” coffee table and give visitors a sneak peek of our 7-application suite for the Lowell Observatory.

Our Open House also marked an exciting, new chapter in Ideum’s story as we welcomed guests behind-the-scenes to take a first look at our newly-completed production space. Adding an additional 5,000 square feet to our operation, the new space will allow us to expand the production of our popular multitouch tables and touch walls, and improve support.

We’re already looking forward to next year’s Open House!
