22Moo, iTunes Kiosk
Australian hardware and software developer 22Moo today began development on an iTunes Kiosk called the "PodBuffet." The prototype will be powered by an Intel-based Mac mini running a 15-inch TFT touch screen with virtual keyboard software, a wireless internet connection, and a customized application for timed access to iTunes. The "PodBuffet" iTunes Kiosk will also feature multiple dock connectors, as well as female USB and FireWire ports to accommodate older iPods and Shuffle owners. 22Moo hopes to allow iPod owners around the world to download videos and music to their portable devices in locations such as airports, train stations, hotels, and shopping centers.
