Here, a user selects their partner for building a space station module at one of six available user stations in the Design It! application, designed and developed by Ideum for the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. The Design It! application runs on an Ideum 84″ Colossus multitouch table.
Ideum has been working with the National Air and Space Museum to create the application, which invites visitors to design modules for a theoretical space station. Visitors choose from among modules focused on the crew, scientific research, or space station maintenance, and then must decide what features should go into the module – all while staying within budget. After a visitor has built a module, it is added to a 3D model of the station in the center of the table. Visitors also have the option to email themselves a copy of the station with their own module, and additional information included.
