    mp3kitchen?

    So I'm in the process of buying my first house/townhouse/condo... and i have it in my head that it would be awesome to have a kitchen computer to control a media system, maybe watch dvds or tv, internet access (for recipes and what not), centralized music controller, basic automation, etc... I bet i could use one of the car front ends paired up with a via epia board. I'd want this thing flushed mounted into the wall so i think i could use one of those headrest monitor mounting systems for easy implementation.

    has this been done before? anyone have any links? open to brainstorming ideas too.

    i've found these links that seem interesting:

    I think another member on this board was making a kitchen PC with RoadRunner and a bunch of recipie's. I thought I for sure read about it somewhere on here.

    Also that weird mac like PC with the printer in it too for the kitchen. Not flush with the wall though, and pricey.

    I think this will make for a good project.

    I thought of something like this about a year ago.
    Use one of those waterproof roll-up keyboards
