Didn't know where to put this, so a client of mine came to me, he builds his own boats by hand. He attends like 2 to 3 boat shows a year, which i guess isn't alot if you make boats. Compared to a company like Fountain. What he wants is an interactive display that he can setup. I never dealt with anything like this before so iam alittle at a loss. I can get a touch screen monitor no problem. what software would run on it? or project or it? 

 

He has a nice laptop that could hook into the monitor and run the software. 

 

He sent me a link to this http://marketdistinctly.com/

 

He is looking for something similar but don't want to pay a monthly fee, since he only does 2 to 3 shows a year.

 

Anyone got any ideas on what i can build and or get for him to make this happen?

Thanks for the links Rocky, seen similar which is the direction i was thinking, can build a stand for something like http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824016333  this. That people can walk up to. But what about the software? Any ideas on what to use to create the interface. Something he can put all his info into and it creates a "kiosk/informational" type interface where potential clients can drill down into to learn more about his boats and company.

That doesn't sound too complicated. I will give this some thought.

You could run a web server on something and do it that way.  Where the machine would boot into a full screen browser with a local HTML document/site.

 

A major concern is that the public would have access to it and there are a lot of people out there without your best interests in mind.  So, anything you set up should have an established method to return the machine to its "out of the box" configuration in case someone manages to muck it up.
