The new "Mediasone" kiosk to be installed at Deichmanske Library in Oslo

I work at a Company called Computas. We have been developing a new search interface for a multimedia kiosk called “Mediasone” (=Media zone) this autumn. The development is not finished, but the hardware of the kiosks was publicly displayed on Friday.

It looks like this might be a great hit if my feelings have any votes on this. These kiosks are going to be used as user interfaces for a multimedia search feature that the Deichmanske Library is releasing soon. You will be able to search all kind of multi-media content available in the Library, including sources like NRK, movie companies and a lot of music. Everything trough a touch sensitive screen and on software running on Mac OSX.

The kiosks have been designed by students at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design.

More news to come at a later date.
