Enjoy cooking recipes from the web, but don’t want to waste valuable counter space on a monitor and keyboard? Well, then you might be interested in The iPhone Inspired DIY Kitchen Touch Screen Project by Ryan of JUDD Studio Engineering. To complete the project, he mounted a touch-screen monitor into the wall, hid a computer in a cupboard, and developed a touchscreen GUI to make it easy to interact with. In addition to showing recipes, the system can also check the weather, manage grocery lists with a barcode scanner, run kitchen timers, and, when not in use, acts as a digital photo frame.
