heavy duty keyboard for free internet cafe

  cyberpharmacist 12:31 01 May 2003

Hi All,

I am implementing a free internet cafe for a hospital, but the keyboard and mouse always get vandalised. I have seen some heavy duty keyboard some where on the public areas where internet access is give (something in a shopping mall) and have that kind of heavy duty keyboard and mouse (the lock down type).

Does anyone know where i can get them from?

many thanks.

they specialise in keyboards for kiosks, etc. They have a line of vandal resistant keyboards and also metal keyboards with a built in trackball.

Hope this helps

You could alway's consider placing a PCI Video Capture card into a machine & record what people get upto. Clearly state that people caught maliciously using the equipment will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. £140 quid will buy you a security camera & revelant PCI card.

wow guys, thanks!!!

following on the lead on the pci video capture cards, do you know of any good for home use?

and yes, for the Kustom keyboards, they will have to fire me to get the extra cash for those keyboards!
