Quantum Thoughts

Chumby Informartion Center

Posted on: February 19, 2008

First read in make,then saw some republish in gizmodo. Seems like an ideal alternative to the plain old windows powered Information kiosk we offer now in our contacts. I am referring to a windows machine with a touch screen on top in various sizes provided by friendlyway, one of the leaders in the media presentation industry. But in scaled applications it may come handy.

I have to mention explicitly the fact that is Linux powered and some significant orders of magnitude cheaper. Furthermore, considering linux operating system and build in wifi, one could even write his parallel processing software. 😉

Reconsidering, it could also serve as a media player since is capable of video and sound streaming which sound a pretty much decent alternative to a mac mini media center and yet again many orders of magnitude cheaper.

I think the geek inside me has taken control and I will order one, so keep posted and rss informed for the forthcoming review.

You can find a detailed description here in the official chumby shop.
