Crowd-funded Indiegogo project turns any flat surface into a touchscreen Android tablet



On Indiegogo is a project called the Lazertouch Mini Projector. The device uses a laser to turn any surface (think a wall or a table) into a touchscreen Android tablet. With the product, a 15-inch touchscreen can be projected on a desk. An optional IR pen can be used to write on the screen as though it were a whiteboard. The projector is powered by a quad-core 1.2GHz CPU, and features 2GB of RAM with 32GB of native storage. Android 4.4 is pre-installed, and a 13,600mAh battery keeps the lights on for as long as 2.5-hours between charges.

You can watch movies on a screen you flash on a wall that can be as large as 80-inches. The Lazertouch Mini Projector also supports Wi-Fi and  Bluetooth. The projector features a built-in speaker.

To receive the Lazertouch Mini Projector, you need to pledge at least $475. This will allow you to receive a Lazertouch unit in July at a price that is $175 or 27% off the regular MSRP of $650. The company has so far raised $7382, or about 25% of the $30,000 that it is seeking. There is still a month left to raise the remaining $22618.

That's really amazing innovation! Turn any wall into an interactive SmartBoard, or use it like a projector you can actually interact with from a distance via it's light projection...patiently waiting for it it to evolve to the point where it literally becomes the latter and can be plugged into any Windows PC like a second monitor.

What you wanted is already here today, it's called the portable pizo projector.

Really? You can interact with that second display naturally instead of virtually with some pointer?

I get you. But the thing is I find their spec a bit under powered and my experience with led virtual keyboard is also not that great. I do like my pocket pizo projector, it's cheap and handy.

I seen something similar to this at an airport once. But it was probably 8ftx8ft and was projected on the wall as a memory game or some sort. People walking by could "touch" the wall and play it.

Any flat surface? I think I may just turn my old netbook into a tablet!
