Touch screen jukebox

We went “live” with our forums less than 24 hours ago and we already have our first project ready for the front page.  [Elementix] has shown us his touch screen jukebox build. Using an assortment of car audio speakers and amplifiers hooked up to an old Pentium 4 PC with 120 Gigs of storage, he put together the base cabinet. The touchscreen is an ebay find and he built a custom enclosure for that part. For the interface, he started with “Jukebox Arcade”, a jukebox front end for mame cabinets but found he could easily manipulate the layout since it used an xml file for the settings. After some trial and error, and a little work with the gimp, he got it looking the way he wanted. If you haven’t been there already, you should really check out our new forums.

  1. Oooh. I have an 8″ Lilliput LCD with touch, going to use it directly on my LinuxMCE server as a “media station”, everything builti inside an old secretary.

    But I have separated the w00fers from the rest of the setup. Won’t the old furniture distort the sound, or send out massive vibrations?

  2. I haven’t had any problems with it. Everything is solidly mounted, and the front doors are held in place by magnets.

  3. @Elementix-

    THANKS!!! I followed your forum post sources, and have the setup running with your big button GUI.
    NICE WORK. I am off and running with cabinet ideas now..
