    Hi all,

    i'm scanning the web to find the correct hardware for a project i'm facing. I have to build some sort of
    machine that takes pictures of samples at a certain period of time.

    Now, the board needs to have to following functions :

    -Be able to connect to internet (check)
    -able to connect to a remote mssql server (?)
    -relay output (at least 2, doable)
    -analog input (check)
    -a camera connected that can takes still images and send them trough email.
    -around 7" touchscreen, with an app that uses this touchscreen fullscreen.

    I do think the Udoo has all it takes, question is, how? I'm really not familiar with Python and i don't
    see it as an easy to learn language. I have lots of experience with arduino so programming that wont
    be a problem.

    Do you guys think it's doable to build some sort of kiosk application that runs fullscreen on the
    UDOO ?

    thanks for any advice

    Absolutely yes,
    you can use the Official 7'' LVDS displays ... touch.html
    They work straight out of the box. To do a kiosk, you can use the official UDOObuntu distro, and start automatically chromium in full screen mode... You can then choose the code that mostly fits your need. Personally I would go with nodejs, as you could run server and client side applications with that.
    Keep me posted!
