A client has come to me wanting an interactive installation featuring a large (50"+) touch screen interface, one on a wall, and one built into a table. I've seen lots of touchscreen overlays on the market that work with Mac or Windows, but don't have any firsthand experience with them.
- What kind of risks or concerns should I know about?
- What are common and reliable Hardware requirements?
- Is there a better place to ask this question?
Details about me: I'm an experienced interaction designer & developer (HTML5, and many years before advanced Flash/AS3) and I have some physical computing experience with Arduino and Beaglebone (Wiring/Processing Language) type projects.
I've designed and programed Flash based interactive kiosks for Museums, but it was on existing hardware, and I wasn't involved with setting that part up.
I'm also experienced with furniture design and production including CNC milling, and would like something that I can build into a custom frame rather than an all-in-one solution.
UPDATE: The location will be indoors, in a museum-like lighting environment, and we can actually make suggestions as to lighting needs to some degree.
We're looking at the Multitaction style rear projector display because we'd like to have object detection capabilities, and table style interaction as well, but have no experience with this particular hardware.
