We are looking into options for setting up a physical kiosk (touchscreen monitor and computer) in our lobby to allow visitors to our building to browse digital versions of some items from our collection. I see that Turning The Pages (e.g. http://archive.nlm.nih.gov/proj/ttp/) provides a nice solution for this but I just wanted to see if anyone else had worked with something similar and might know of any other options (open source?) so that we can do a little comparing and contrasting. For some reason I am thinking there was a discussion a little while back about 3D digital collections browsing but can't seem to locate it and don't know it if was like the above scenario.
I think since it's a kiosk style implementation and we are looking for apples-to-apples comparisons, we are interested in the physical, touch-screen turning of the page interaction rather than a browser pointed at a more pragmatic digital collections browser, at least at this point in the exploration.
Thanks in advance for anyone that might have potential suggestions,
