Dad Builds PBSKids.org Kiosk


We've expended an enormous amount of energy keeping the kid from touchscreening our laptops, so we're already doomed on this one, but maybe it's not too late for you.

A dad named John loaded Firefox onto a surplus point-of-sale touchscreen and set it to open to the "surprisingly touchscreen friendly" PBSKids.org. Now his kids, 18-mos and 3-yo, have their own play station.

See more details at Make's blog. First, pick up an IBM Anyplace Kiosk ELO Touchscreen for cheap... Oh wait, they're like $500 on eBay...
