At this week’s Apple Expo in Paris, 1stKIOSK, a company that develops touch screen kiosks and dynamic digital signs, is demoing and taking advance orders for k-Builder, a native Mac OS X interactive application development tool specifically written for kiosk projects.
K-Builder lets you create simple or sophisticated interactive kiosks and can also manage the scheduling of images and video for dynamic digital signs, according to Mitch Krayton, president of 1stKIOSK. k-Builder supports 15 user languages per project, and takes advantage of such native tools in Mac OS X as Aqua, QuickTime 6, ColorSync, TrueType/OpenType, OpenGL, Acrobat, Postscript and AppleScript.
K-Builder can be used for a single kiosk project or scaled to thousands of units. The cost is US$495 with the product due to ship by month’s end.
The Apple Expo booth is sponsored by Troll Touch of Valencia, California, a provider of touch screens for iMacs, eMacs, and iBooks. The show is being held at the Paris Expo in Porte de Versailles, Hall 4, September 10-14.
