We have already reported on the arrival of the TouchKit as well as on its initial run. This time, we present our sturdy new mounting solution for the whole system. We have accomodated the display screen of the TouchKit in the middle of a hollow desktop. Here is the author with the solution.
It can be noticed that the TTT is tilted. This allows easier manipulation by a single user either by standing in front of the screen or sitting on a higher chair. The tilt angle is adjustable. The TTT can also lie flat which would allow easier information sharing around the table. The tabletop is mounted using hinges and a simple prop-up mechanism shown in the following image.
The table itself is a standard office desk which was customized for our needs.
Besides for running TouchKit projects, this setup can also be used for TouchKit development. The image below shows the mount of a keyboard and mouse on the tilted table, which provide a basic development environment.
Further action plans include buying and installing a short-throw projector device, which could be mounted onto the bottom of the tabletop. This would allow the screen to be lowered to a horizontal position and still have a maximum projection window size.
Let me know below, if you have any comments on the solution. Thanks,
