When designing a kiosk it is very important to simplify user interaction as much as possible. Adding a custom touch keypad eliminates all of the extra unused buttons that come with a computer keyboard making it more user friendly. The best part about a custom keypad is that it can be made to match your kiosk design, this way you are not left with a beautiful kiosk and a full keyboard of which you only use certain keys.
For this project Rapid Keypads designed a custom kiosk keypad containing 6 keys along with a custom designed overlay. The graphic was digitally printed onto .125” thick acrylic. The keys were then mapped to the play/pause, volume up, volume down, mute and Ctrl+R keys found in regular keyboards. In addition, there were two invisible keys mapped to F11 and F12. The result was a one of a kind custom keypad!
