I want to build an appliance for the kitchen. It is supposed to play music (files, streams, CDA), surf the web (recipe sites!), maybe play video (files and streams) display todays agenda during breakfast.
Because I do not want it to run 24/7, it should boot up really fast. I am thinking about a small SSD for the OS.
I also want to use a touch screen.
I will probably use NetBSD or Linux (not sure yet).
It really should get the feel of an appliance like a car GPS system or a smart phone.
Now here is the question: Is there some kind of interface that can be operated by touch screen (on screen keyboard?) and that can be tweaked to what I want to do with it?
Bonus question: Did you build such a system yourself? How?
