Pretty much all of the software pieces are in place. The most recent focus has been on the physicals of the kiosk. The pillar that holds the TVs can be seen in a previous post.

The new pieces below are for displaying the boards that make the kiosk run. They sit atop the pillar. As can be seen further below, the boards will sit between the backs of the two TVs.

These shapes were generated by first drawing a 7x7x2 inch box with http://makercase.com. After the laser cut SVG file was downloaded, I used Inkscape to leave only the fingered joints on the two sides and modified one of the 2×7 faces so that the 7×7 face would be at a 45 degree from the horizontal. The sides are glued to the 7×7 faces with a 1/2 in square piece of hardwood. No screws were used for these joints since they are low stress joint. The pillar was screwed but I may still disassemble it and glue the joints for added strength.
