Tokyo - Sony introduced the Xperia Touch projector at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. The device will now be made available in the United States priced at 1,699.99 through Amazon.
It will also be made available through some T-Mobile stores in Chicago, Los Angeles and Miami and also the Sony Square display room in New York City. The Xperia Touch projector will be able to turn the surfaces of doors, cabinets, and walls into touchscreens. Users can view calendar events, weather data, and there is a memo board where family members can leave messages to be viewed. The project is also able to access Skype video chats, and leave video notes. It comes with a 13-megapixel camera.
The projector runs OS Android Nougat allowing it to do anything that an Android tablet can do. It can web browse, watch videos and even download apps from the Google Store. A charge should last about an hour but it can be plugged in through a USB-C port. The projector allows any member to broadcast what they are doing throughout the house. Of course family members may not always want to do this!
The Experia was also shown at the annual |Consumer Electronics Show in January. The projector uses IR sensors combined with a 60fps camera that allows the projected imaged to also serve as a 10 point multi-touch touch screen. The image can be projected horizontally or vertically The touch screen is 23 inches. Google Play is available as is access to PlayStation. There is also an 80 inch projection mode.
The Experia is small enough that it can be carried around the home without difficulty. You can at one time use it as an interactive recipe book projecting on to a kitchen surface and then as an 80 inch TV or as a web browser with a display far larger than any tablet. The Experia is already for sale in Europe.
