Finding information on building a kiosk from scratch is difficult. Where should you even begin? There’s a lot to try and figure out. Software. Hardware. Integration. Deployment. As a fun project, I decided to try and forget everything that I’ve learned about kiosks and start from the beginning. Thankfully, forgetting everything came pretty naturally to me. Essentially—I wanted my mind to be a blank slate. So, like everyone else, I started with Google. My first search query was “developing a kiosk from scratch”, and the results were a bit disappointing. The only one that really grabbed by attention was a case study from Elo Touch Solutions titled “Strategies for Successful Kiosk Implementation.” In the case study, Elo did a great job of talking about the growth of the kiosk industry, suggestions for kiosk deployment, and the importance of touch technologies. But as you can imagine, since Elo is a for-profit company it was skewed towards their technology.
