Ever since we fitted the new kitchen I had planned to fit a touch screen that would run a software remote to control lights, heating, etc. Over a year ago I picked up a Acer Iconia W500 tablet from ebay. This has been upgraded to Windows 8.1 and runs the HouseBot software remote, plus many other touch friendly apps that I think will be useful in the kitchen.
The tablet has been sitting under my desk as one of the many to-do project. The plan is to flush mount it in my boiler cupboard door. Before I could do this, I needed to get a custom bezel cut to fit around the hole, that also needs to be cut. Over Christmas I finally got the measurements and design over to lasermaster.co.uk and they have sent me the bezel in 1.5mm brushed steel.
Here's a photo of the bezel sitting on the Acer tablet. Next step is to cut the hole in the kitchen cupboard and fit the tablet and bezel. I'm a little worried! I'll post again once it's in !
