Kiosk Website Guideline


 

To share my experience and help you think proactively for any such application in future , here is the quick know-how.

 

1.       Disable Zoom in touch screen- This will be disturb UX.

2.       Hide vertical scroll bar.

3.       Disabled left and right touch scroll to avoid back and forward history.

4.       Screen resolution of Kiosk.

5.       Attract Screen, if in case kiosk site is offline. This attract screen should be screen saver. This screen saver is set of content managed screens so that we can display some information about specials or products.

6.       Kiosk refresh after 2 mins. So that it fetch timely feeds from CMS system.

7.       For Kiosk refresh ensure browser cache is disabled. Real Time Data

8.       For Kiosk Refresh mode ensure server side caching is disabled. Real Time Data .need Assessment so as to enable this based on more static or persistent content.

9.       For touch device there is concept called Pinch Zoom and Flicker pen touch. Check the setting for touch device. This comes handy.

10.   Access restriction to Kiosk Application hosted in cloud.

 

That’s it! J

How to Restrict IP to website in Asp.net ?

 
 
This is essential when we want to allow only given set of ip address or domain. This is called white list IP range allow or blacklist IP range deny
 
Remember
  1. Private IP will not work , use public IP
  2. Private IP is machine /device ip
  3. Public IP is internet IP that connects from your computer /device to help you browse website.

Tips and Tricks :Kiosk Mode For IE

Sometimes we get a requirement to put our webform in Kiosk and end-users are not suppose to disturb the AS-IS state hence to restrict that there is option build in with windows.
All we have enabled

Run-> iexplorer -k website url


 

To start Internet Explorer in Kiosk mode and start Internet Explorer with the Microsoft Web site, click Start, point to Run, and then type iexplore -k www.microsoft.com in the Open box.


You can lock down these subversive key combinations using restrictions in the Registry. Launch RegEdit from the Start menu's Run dialog; navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\

Policies\Microsoft Internet Explorer\Restrictions; and find or create each of the following DWORD values, setting its data to 1 to enable the restriction:

  • NoBrowserClose (disables closing the browser window)

  • NoBrowserContextMenu (disables right-click context menu)

  • NoFileOpen (disables use of Ctrl-O or Ctrl-L to launch an arbitrary URL)

  • NoOpenInNewWnd (disables opening a link in a new window via Ctrl-N or Shift-click)

My Idea: Ecommerce Real time Shopping experience using Online.

I'm not sure about this idea is already evolved, think through and designed . It might be a reality somewhere. We moved from 3G to 4G world now. The time is not too far when streaming will be way of live.


Just imagine we shop online we search for product , add to shopping cart ,checkout and make online orders. What if we do online shopping directly entering into given preferred store as if you're physically present. The idea is simple ,  a live video robotic cameras which will take you to each location (AISLE) or shelf of the store where products or item is placed , you are taken to store tour and you in a way pick the product or scan a product or tick it to add to your shopping cart. The camera assigned to you will help capture barcode and add it to shopping list. There will be predefined set of robotic camera for any user to select from. Is this possible? Not sure.. But seems to be concept.




Like there are predefined set of robotic cameras installed and mount on each location which keep moving once it is assigned to you when you want to shop from that given store. It could be small high definition, ISO precisions camera which keep moving, rolling and given you feed time to time. This is bit trickiest and amazing experience while you just don't have to search item and want to move like a regular shopper within store to understand all variation , range of product. This is my idea and may be it is adapted, opted and engineered to bring live to the real world platform.
