Abstract In this paper we describe a proposal of a multimedia kiosk that can be used to provide diverse information to the wide public. We propose two versions of the intelligent kiosk. First version is placed on public places and offer three-dimensional human head displayed on a large display that gives information about city, institutions, weather, etc. It is a system with integrated microphone array, camera and touch screen as an input and two displays and loudspeakers as the output. Speech recognized question for some information will be transformed into an answer using database or internet and then visually and acoustically displayed to the costumer with help of robust multilingual speech synthesizer and powerful graphical engine. The second flexible version, even if with limited functionality, is the concept of mobile phone used as a multimedia terminal for access to different information.
