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.
