Though the patterns in Designing Mobile Interfaces are supposed to be general enough to apply to kiosks, telematics, 10-foot Ui, etc. and my touch research originally was also, experts in those fields insist they just aren't the same. I have given in and in the interest of increasing knowledge, am going to start linking to the good stuff in related domains. If you know of a good info source for any of these, tell me about it and I'll add it.
Kiosks even if they are made by strapping an iPad to the wall, have different context, and different environmentally-derived interactions. Design them differently.
Designing Software for Kiosks by Studio IQ. Good tips. Keep bugging them, and maybe we'll get a full repository of info out of them.
10-foot-UI is any interactive experience viewed from a distance. The usual assumption is a TV in a living room. Smart TVs have brought this out of the game console, and made it more mainstream. Your website is getting viewed at 10 foot range, in group settings.

TV Screen Sizes by popularity of Web viewing, September 2013
Large displays some thoughts I am putting together with a manufacturer of displays. WIP.
Games No matter what they are on, game design is a bit different. Different enough I did not cover it in anything else in this book. Game design resources (TBD) should be referenced generally.
That Game's UX terrific blog on gaming, with all sorts of great UX principles applied or reviewed.

Augmented Reality - Not really a platform like the others, I have seen enough good stuff that is really pushing the bounds of what we think of as interaction and interface that I think AR also needs a separate and robust set of standards. I have also used an Occulus Rift and it. Is. Awesome. AR and VR is maybe going to happen and we need to not be surprised by it and muddle through this transition. We need standards. Now.
Manuals - I hate FAQs, and help in general. It's a matter of principle that I don't design help systems for my tools. But manuals do exist, and need to not be terrible. I have a lot of terrible manuals, and encounter a lot of bad ones at work, but never have a way to suggest how specifically to improve them aside from just hiring good writers. Well, now there's a guide to good manuals.
