Kiosk keyboards may look like regular old keyboards, but they're not. Kiosk keyboards are designed not only to be anti-theft and anti-vandal, but to withstand near constant use. Imagine what a computer keyboard must go through in the average internet cafe!

Kiosk Keyboards and Public Internet Access

Public internet access first became popular when people had email accounts (through their work or school) but didn't have home access to the Internet. Nowadays, most people who have an email account have home access. Yet, the need for public internet access continues. Why is that?

We can compare it to the need for a telephone. Before most people had telephones in their homes, the need for a public telephone was only an occasional one. Its use was reserved for important emergencies. Once people had home phones and became used to using them more casually, they found that they needed a phone more often when they were away from their homes. Frequent use created consistent need.

The same, of course, is true for the Internet. If you're anything like me, you check your email four times a day, and still have to wade through dozens of emails at a time. As long as there is a need for public internet access, there will be a need for durable kiosk keyboards that can withstand an incredible amount of use.
