June 18, 2015 — Vancouver, British Columbia, Toronto, Ontario and New York, NY — Graphene 3D Lab Inc. (TSX-V: GGG, OTCQB: GPHBF) (“Graphene 3D”) and Ideum, a company which develops large-scale smart-tables and walls, are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) which lays the foundation for joint research, product development, and marketing between the two companies.
Graphene 3D and Ideum will consider and co-develop products by Graphene 3D which can be used as capacitive sensors to interface with Ideum’s product offerings. Graphene 3D will also begin commercial on-demand 3D printing of coasters, joysticks, and styluses which Ideum clients can use to interact with their smart-tables. For example, styluses of various shapes, 3D printed in Conductive Graphene Filament, may be used as brushes used in photo editing software, giving a more hands-on feel to creative work done on an Ideum smart-table.

The agreement also calls for both parties to jointly produce a whitepaper on any research findings. All jointly-developed products will be promoted through Ideum sales channels, and Graphene 3D will partner with Ideum in various marketing activities, including participation in forums and trade shows.
Graphene 3D CEO Dr. Daniel Stolyarov commented, “Partnering with Ideum is the perfect opportunity for Graphene 3D to showcase its ability to address various market needs with rapid prototyping of 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.”
“Our clients are always looking for new ways to interact with Ideum multitouch tables in a variety of different settings and markets” added Ideum’s CEO, Jim Spadaccini. “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.”
