How to Build kiosk hardware| ARCA

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.
