Turn any flat surface into an Android tablet with a small projector.
The Lazertouch mini projector is the first of its kind in the world and has the ability to transform any flat surface into a finger-activated touchscreen. Recently launched on international crowdfunding website, Indiegogo, the company behind the mini projector claims that the projector can support anywhere from 20 to150 inch screen sizes and that users can operate the screen by using a stylus or their finger.
The technology can recognize several finger gestures, making it easy to use.
The laser touch technology emits an invisible laser beam, parallel to the projection screen. When the user’s finger touches the laser beam the sensor detects it, enabling the flat surface to function just like an Android tablet touchscreen.
With the Lazertouch mini projector users can click, slide, zoom, adjust volume by sliding up and down on the upper right side outside of the screen, among other convenient functions.
The projector is portable and is equipped with an interior 13,600mAh battery. It actually runs Android, providing a touchscreen-optimized operating system as well as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, downloadable apps, speakers, 32GB of storage and ports for HDMI, USB, Micro SD, and headphones.
The technology was designed and developed by Shanghai Easi. It has been in the works for five years and obtained seven patents, according to the company.
Lazertouch mini projector is great for office presentations and even for watching 3D movies at home.
The mini projector features a desktop projection mode, which functions like a tablet PC. It also has a wall projection mode, which provides users with an interactive white board. Its 3D holographic projections makes it ideal for business meetings and even advertising.
In addition to being an excellent tool for office presentations, Lazertouch allows users to watch 4K, 3D and even 200-inch HD movies at home. It can also project musical instruments and supports immersive VR gaming.
Should it hit the market, the suggested retail price for the Lazertouch mini projector – which comes with an IR e-pen stylus, pointer and remote control – will be $650. However, those who are interested in preordering the device via the Indiegogo campaign can do so for $475.
