Kiosk

The WasabiNet concept includes an information kiosk built from a low-cost touchscreen computer and installed in a public area (e.g. the Cherokee St. Business Incubator).  This kiosk will feature an information outlet similar to the Captive Portal, local ads, basic email, and possibly even Skype voice chat.

Technical Details

The initial prototype kiosk could be built with a refurbished Point-of-Sale (POS) touchscreen PC with a Wi-Fi interface, and no external keyboard or mouse.  Later revisions could replace the computer with an inexpensive mini-PC [1], [2], or even a homemade enclosure similar to a video game MAME cabinet.
