    (k osk) (n.) A booth providing a computer-related service, such as an Automated Teller Machine (ATM). Another type of Kiosk offers tourist information.

    A kiosk requires a simple user interface that can be used without training or documentation, and the hardware must be rugged and capable of operating unattended for long periods of time. Touch screens can provide some of these features because they enable a user to enter and display information on the same device and eliminate the need for keyboards, which are prone to break.
