Sony Mobile’s new Xperia Touch looks like an external drive (or toaster) and doesn’t have any screens for you to actually touch, but it could very well be the start of a revolutionary new way to interact with your online world.
The Xperia Touch essentially combines the internal hardware of an Android OS tablet with Sony’s unique SXRD short-throw projection unit, which lets you project a 23-inch to 80-inch screen onto tables and walls while keeping the Xperia Touch unit pretty close.
Now the beauty of the UI is that it combines Infrared lights and a 60fps motion-sensing camera to detect your gestures and motion, turning almost any flat surface in your home into a touchscreen, from kitchen counters to living room walls!
The Xperia Touch runs Android Nougat comes with 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal memory plus a microSD slot and up to 1 hour of battery life. It connects via HDMI, USB Type-C and has WiFi, Miracast, Bluetooth and NFC, plus it is fully compatible with PlayStation 4 Remote Play.
