Xperia Touch – $1587 touch enabled projector

Sony unveiled last year a concept projector product that allowed users to interact with any surface as if it was a touch screen. As apparently people want every surface to interact when touched, this might be an off statement for some, so apologies n advance.

Anyways, the prototype was buggy and difficult to use. But a year later, the Xperia Touch as it’s now called, has been vastly improved and Sony is commercializing the product.

Sony  launched the Xperia Touch priced at 1,499 euros ($1,587) beginning in Japan and Europe and later to the U.S. It runs Google’s mobile operating system Android allowing users full access to apps from the Google Play store. The box is relatively decent in size. Which allows users to carry it easily anywhere.


Here’s a GIF that will give you a estimate of the dimensions and usage of this projector.

As well as this digital pin board functionality, the Touch can do anything you’d expect an Android tablet to. You can browse the web, watch videos or slideshows, and download apps and games from the Google Play Store. It also works with the PS4’s Remote Play feature, meaning you can use it to game over the internet if someone else is using the TV attached to your console.

The Touch uses Sony’s SXRD projection display technology and detects users’ gestures and taps using a combination of infrared sensors and a regular 60 fps camera. Sony has been trying to push into new product categories amid stiff competition in smartphones where it has failed to gain significant market share. The company sees its future in the so-called Internet of Things (IOT) market, which refers to devices connected to the internet. To that end, it also showed off a concept product called the Xperia Ear Open Concept, which is a wireless earphone with a built-in artificial voice assistant. Last year, Sony unveiled the Xperia Ear but has since gone back to the drawing board and redesigned the concept. This has not yet been commercialized.

Analysts said that the Xperia Touch will not sell in large quantities because of its price, but it has been used to show Sony’s ability to innovate. I appreciate such investments companies make. What you guys, think?

This is all for now, PEACE!
