Australian software and hardware developer, 22Moo, has confirmed it is developing an iTunes kiosk for public places.

The company calls the solution its "PodBuffet". The current prototype is based on an Intel-based Mac mini that drives a 15in touch-sensitive screen (with a virtual keyboard).

The station has wireless internet access and runs an application that offers timed access to the iTunes Music Store. 22Moo plans to furnish the PodBuffet with multiple dock connectors and a female USB and a FireWire port for older iPods and the iPod shuffle.

The company hopes that the final version of the solution – which will allow iPod users to buy tracks through the kiosk – will be deployed at high -traffic locations, such as libraries, airports, or hotels.
