Ideum collaborated with Starbucks to create an interactive experience featuring their high-quality reserve coffees. Patrons use custom laser-etched wooden coasters to explore the traceability, sustainability, and the people behind their brews.

Media Creator + SDK:
Two Ways to Create

The Tangible Engine Media Creator is a standalone design & build tool that allows designers to create tangible applications for Ideum touch tables right out of the box. The Media Creator also ships with our Software Development Kit, which allows developers to construct entirely customized, from-the-ground-up tangible applications.

Customized Tangible Objects

The base tangible objects are made with 3D-printed conductive material in different patterns. These conductive bases can be integrated into more elaborate designs. We've developed wine and beer glasses, acrylic "totems," wooden coasters, and other interesting tangibles objects.
