Floors, tables and walls can be transformed into iPad-like touchscreens using Sony’s new projector, which launched at this week’s Mobile World Congress.
The Xperia Touch is an interactive projector that Sony’s innovation division, the Future Lab, first previewed as an experimental concept at SXSW last year. Now Sony Mobile is gearing up to release the product to consumers from spring 2017.
The projector turns any flat surface into a 23-inch high-definition touchscreen. It is able to detect movement corresponding to clicks and swipes, using a combination of infrared light and its built-in camera.
Sony Mobile says the camera operates at 60 frames per second, meaning the interface is “fast, fluid and responsive to physical touch”.
