Sony turned up with a very interesting experimental home device, the Xperia Touch, at MWC 2017 – An android based projector that could convert any display into a touch screen! And it will hit retail shelves sometime later this year with a price tag of $1587 (Roughly Rs. 1,06,000).
The portable projector can project a 720p screen, or rather touchscreen, and has an infrared sensor that can be used to detect your touches. This touch screen has a custom designed, Android-based interface that you can maneuver. So you can play videos, scroll through web pages, skype or even play games by projecting a screen on any surface. Basically, the promotional video below explains how this works
Sony Xperia Touch – Make surfaces come to life
Suppose you use it to project an image at a maximum height of 80-inches, the touch won’t work as the display won’t be in close proximity to the IR sensor. And is such situations, you could also rely on a regular Bluetooth controller to cruise through the interface.
For now, Sony Xperia Touch looks like a really cool piece of technology for early adopters but we are not really sure why you would actually need one.
