Web Kiosk Online Keyboard

Circa 1999

This was another one of those quick projects you work on while you should actually be working on your PhD. On campus at Griffith University they had a number of web kiosks which were simply a PC locked in a box with a monitor, a web-browser and a mouse - but no keyboard. The idea was that you could use the mouse to click on links within the university intranet but you couldn't use it to surf the web. At least that was the idea...

From the university's homepage you could access a list of schools and departments. From our school you could access a list of research groups and from our research group page you could access my homepage - all just by following links.

I hacked up a simple Java keyboard applet that could be accessed from an invisible GIF image on my publications page (can you find it out without cheating and looking at the page source?). You could use the mouse to type in any URL you wanted and the world was your proverbial oyster.

If you don't want to hunt for the hidden image you can just click on the image below to try the keyboard.

If your looking for a virtual keyboard in your preferred language Google have now integrated them into Google search
