Make me a gadget, please!

Dream gadget The other day I was writing about using my TEL7J tablet in the kitchen because it is not an expensive gadget and it’s durable. I was suggesting we could have a purpose built gadget for the kitchen – splash proof, basic, durable but web enabled. I know what the interface should look like now and I have put up the mock-up left. It needs to be tiled and preferably each tile should operate independently from within that tile, but I’d also like to be able to shift from small to full screen if necessary. I want the web to check sites just for general browsing but also to access YouTube cooking videos and also recipe sites. Infact YouTube could be one of the tiles. Everyone would have different interests. Some people might prefer to access music and sport as they cook. There could even be a news tiles. I guess you should have a bank of tiles to choose from and that the number of tiles could be changed. I always want to know the time and weather and then it’s nice to keep up with Twitter and Facebook. The last tile I’d like is one for images. A scrolling tile for that one so I can have the interest of images changing. It would be great to be able to wall mount this touch screen dream gadget so it is out of the way but easily accessed in front of me. I could use a gadget like this in my classroom. It would have the school daily notices, news services, Google maps, deadline reminders for the week, aitsl and acara. Why not? The teacher toolkit on the wall on a simple , fuss-free interface on a simple, fuss-free gadget. Maybe, by next Christmas!
