It was a great moment today when we took the bubble wrap off our prototype Touchpoint. Here at last was the result of weeks of development work, designing, component selection, modelling ( and cardboard engineering!).
This is our indoor version, we are still awaiting the external Touchpoint. Visually the indoor and outdoor variants are identical, both equally rugged in design, waterproof and shock resistant. The only differences between the two are that the screen on the External unit is a high brightness display, and it also has a heater for those frosty mornings.
We have to admit, they do uncannily resemble their cardboard mock-ups, so we re happy with the outcome.
Next step is to display the draft touchscreen interface display on the prototype and assess it for usability and clarity.
