Sony kicked off its MWC 2017 announcements with the Xperia Touch short throw projector. The “touch” part of the name comes from the device’s ability to turn any surface into a touchpad.
The projector is capable of putting out an image that similar to a 23-inch display. It will operate at 60fps, although we don’t know what kind of hardware is behind it. We do know that an infrared sensor tracks hand gestures to allow the user to interact with the image like a touchscreen.
Sony Mobile also says that the Xperia Touch is WiFi enabled, although that’s all the specifications we have at the moment. We’re not even sure what operating system it runs on; although Sony’s product page says that it runs on some version of Android.
The Xperia Touch is also compatible with PlayStation 4 Remote Play. Which isn’t surprising since its made by Sony.
Sony will be rolling out the Xperia Touch in the spring of 2017 for an rather impressive price of €1499 (about RM7000).
