Ryan from JUDD Studio Engineering just completed a very cool iPhone Like Kitchen Touchscreen Computer. His wife wanted a computer in the kitchen, that’s not an odd request these days. But instead of running down to Best Buy to pick up a new computer and mounting it in the kitchen Ryan decided to make his own unit that has a UI based on the iPhone. The result is some great eye candy on the wall of the kitchen. But that isn’t where it ends, this unit is very functional, it can do run Skype, play iTunes, manage a to do list, update your Outlook calendar, get twitter alerts and much more. There are lots of install pictures and a log that talks about some of the issues faced along the way such as adding a few optional cabinet ventilation holes.

“For years my wife has been on at me to put a computer into the kitchen where she can manage her recipes, shopping lists, to do lists and access the internet for looking up various things.  After looking at a couple of pretty basic and well overpriced commercial units we decied to have a crack at doing this ourselves.

Her requirements:
– must be discrete and look like a digital picture frame when not being used.
– must be touchscreen.
– must have internet access.
– must be easy to use and not crash often (shes used to windows vista)
– must have barcode scanner for managing her kitchen database.
– the wires and techo stuff must be hidden and out of sight.
– should be able to view whats on the lounge TV in the kitchen.”

Ryan’s wife didn’t add her hobbies to her requirements list but with iPhone like touchscreen and an Internet connection she can surely play online slots or read her favourite magazines while working in the kitchen! Our compliments to Ryan on a job well done and for sharing such a great idea.

    Given that cooks tend to have messy fingers, perhaps a gesture interface may be a better option.

    […] Enjoy cooking recipes from the web, but don’t want to waste valuable counter space on a monitor and keyboard? Well, then you might be interested in The iPhone Inspired DIY Kitchen Touch Screen Project by Ryan of JUDD Studio Engineering. To complete the project, he mounted a touch-screen monitor into the wall, hid a computer in a cupboard, and developed a touchscreen GUI to make it easy to interact with. In addition to showing recipes, the system can also check the weather, manage grocery lists with a barcode scanner, run kitchen timers, and, when not in use, acts as a digital photo frame.

    Hey I love the work, would it be too much to ask for a copy of the clone interface?, I’d like to attempt this in my own kitchen, we just move into our new home, and I’d love to try it

  18. Steve Says:

    Expect it’s the same menu bar for Windows XP. Fail.

  19. Bounec Says:

    Right, so you have to lean over the countertop to get near the screen? Great for your back. Not.

  20. Industrial Panel Displays Says:

    That is like a dream kitchen. I wish I could also have one :)

  21. Keith Says:

    I love the display, have you made any changes to it since your original post?

  22. Andreas Says:

    Looks really good. A wallmounted Ipad would prolly do the trick for those not so handy :)

  23. Nicholas Says:

    It would, but for cost, and as well, the part that this was done a long time ago. The iPad really couldn’t and can’t measure up… That and mounting an iPad anywhere doesn’t count as hacking, it doesn’t really even count as modifying…

  24. Andreas Says:

    Hi. Im sorry, I didnt want to step on any toes. I love youre mod. Mounting an Ipad is not a mod/hack. I just wanted to say it could manage most requirements for the most of us… No hard feelings? :)

  25. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi Andreas,

    Check the date on this article, it was pre iPad. :)
