Thanks to enthusiastic guests, dedicated staff, and a wonderfully supportive community, Ideum's 2019 Winter Studio Party was a great success! Over 250 people joined us on Thursday, January 10, to see a range of exciting projects in development, check out our newest multitouch products, and meet many of the talented designers, programmers, content developers, and hardware engineers that make Ideum diverse and exciting.
We showed a large number of new exhibits, including a detailed 3D interactive map of the French Quarter soon to debut at the Historic New Orleans Collection, two large-scale exhibits on the brain for the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, and a colorful immersive design environment for the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame.
We also previewed a compelling historical exhibit about Bob Hope's inspiring travels with the USO for the National World War II Museum and a motion-sensing exhibit that lets visitors become a penguin for the Albuquerque BioPark.
These and other experiences were complemented by tours of the workshop on our main campus and a trip to our new Exhibit Fabrication Studio, where guests could get up close and personal with the facility's precision tools, wood- and metalworking equipment, and highly skilled staff.
We always look forward to events like these, not just because they allow people to experience the exhibits and technology we're proud to work with, but also because they offer an opportunity to meet old friends and forge new connections with clients, neighbors, and other design and exhibit specialists from around the country.
We look forward to seeing you at our next party! Check back here as the 2019 schedule comes together—and sign up for our newsletter to stay in touch!
