Back in January, Sony turned up at the CES with a home projector that could double as a 10-point multi-touch screen computer. At the time, the projector had not been given a name. Now the prototype has come to life and is called the Xperia Touch Projector Computer.
The Xperia Touch is a fantastic projector. It can make just about any flat surface come to life, turning it into a 23-inch touchscreen computer. This means that you can interact with whatever it projects.
This media hub can project a 720p 23-inch touch screen either vertically or horizontally. It uses a short throw projector with a custom interface running on top of Android. The Xperia Touch’s small size makes it easy to carry around from room to room. One minute, you can use in the kitchen as an interactive recipe book and the next you can turn it into a giant whiteboard for your big project at work.
Features include access to PlayStation 4 games, Google Play and Skype video chatting. The 13-megapixel camera works well for selfies or Skype videoconferences. The Xperia Touch also includes an 80-inch projector mode that makes it ideal for gaming. The stereo speaker produces a decent amount of sound.
A built-in battery provides about an hour of charge. This means that the Xperia Touch will remain active if you need to unplug it and move it to another room.
