Ideum develops high tech, large-scale smart-tables and walls, and they’ve now signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Graphene 3D Lab Inc. for a deal that will cover joint research, product development and marketing activities between the two companies.

Graphene 3D develop and manufacture proprietary, graphene-based nanocomposite materials for a range of 3D printing processes, among them, fused filament fabrication. The company also builds 3D printers from their facility in Calverton, NY. That location is equipped with material processing and analytical equipment which has resulted in four US patent applications.

Now Graphene 3D and Ideum plan to co-develop capacitive sensors to interface with Ideum product offerings, and Graphene 3D also plans to offer commercial, on-demand 3D printing of coasters, joysticks and styluses which Ideum clients will use to interact with their smart-table products.

The plan calls for the companies to develop styluses of various shapes which will be 3D printed in conductive graphene filament which may ultimately be used as brushes for photo editing software. The pair say these products will provide a more hands-on feel to the creative work often done on Ideum smart-tables.

Both parties also say they’ll jointly produce a whitepaper on their research findings, and the jointly-developed products will be promoted via Ideum’s sales channels. Graphene 3D will also partner with Ideum in marketing activities such as forums and trade shows.

Graphene 3D’s CEO, Dr. Daniel Stolyarov, says the partnership deal with Ideum is an ideal opportunity for Graphene 3D to showcase their rapid prototyping expertise for functional objects.

“Using Conductive Graphene Filament, our team can manufacture an endless number of unique, custom objects which bring additional functionality to Ideum smart-tables for consumers,” Stolyarov says.

Ideum, a privately-held creative company based in Corrales, New Mexico, designs and produces integrated and hardened, large-scale multitouch hardware. They also build and develop interactive software for museums, educational institutions, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies.

One of their products, a cutting-edge multitouch and motion tracking software environment, is called GestureWorks.

“Our clients are always looking for new ways to interact with Ideum multitouch tables in a variety of different settings and markets” says Jim Spadaccini, the CEO of Ideum. “Conductive 3D printed objects of unique shapes can greatly extend the functionality of our touch tables as we can now assign a different purpose to each tangible object, giving users a much higher degree of control over their devices.”
