Projectors are often a key component when it comes to conferences and board meetings. They don’t come cheap, but years ago there were a handful of gimmicky hopeful smartphones with projector features which might or might not have came in handy for fans who bought them. Sony has been teasing a prototype of a projector with a projected touch screen at multiple tech trade shows since last year, and it has finally been revealed.
This is the Sony Xperia Touch projector, which looks much less of a gimmick than smartphones with projecting capabilities, as this projector is definitely a full fledged model. Suffice to say, the Sony Xperia Touch projector is more feature filled than gimmicky. The projector is equipped with a camera and an infrared sensor, allowing for interaction with the projected display. By interaction we mean touching the projected display.
Images can be projected from 23 inches to 80 inches at a resolution of 1366 X 768, with a respectable 60 frames per second. The Sony Xperia Touch also comes with a set of stereo speakers plus a microphone to capture voice commands. Best part is the projector is powered by Android.
The Sony Xperia Touch isn’t cheap by any means though, coming at $ 1,700 (RM 7,174.85). The projector is currently available in the US through Amazon and other select stores.
