NBTouch: NetBurner at your fingertips

Embedded systems are notoriously difficult to work with for beginners (even with NetBurner’s simple and easy-to-use tools, non-engineers sometimes find it intimidating). Also, it is hard to develop good-looking and friendly user interface(UI) for an embedded device. This project will shows you how to develop a easy to use touch screen device to display web interface on a NetBurner device. This project will allow the integration of all kinds of friendly UI as it is only a web application. For ease of use, I focused on having it set up and run with no required user input.

To make such a product, the goal for the project was to meet the following expectations:

  • Touchscreen
  • Virtual keyboard
  • Minimal window manager / no desktop
  • Automatically find local NetBurner devices
  • Display the devices’ GUI

In this article, I will show you a quick demo and step-by-step how-to guide to make your application efficient, convenient, and simple by displaying your UI on a touchscreen kiosk that meets my listed expectations.
