Light Touch transforms any flat surface into a touch screen

Light Touch acts as an interactive projector, which schools usually use. It projects a 10.1? diagonal full colour image onto any flat surface. Multimedia on the device can be easily interacted with, as the Light Touch has compatible multi touch.

Holographic Laser Projection technology creates video images in WVGA resolution. Integrated infrared sensors detect motion. By just touching these images on the flat surface you can interact by swiping, pinching and tapping. Moreover these gestures are used to play games, play videos, and social networking. However I can imagine typing on the onscreen keyboard would be a major hassle.

The system supports Adobe Flash Lite 3.1 for video playback. It has a meagre 2GB flash internal memory however it is compensated by having a Micro SD card slot that supports up to 32GB. The manufactures state it has an internal Li-Ion rechargeable 3600mAh but doesn’t release any information on its battery life.

The device is quite small and light at 400g, so can be easily carried in a small bag, but would not fit into anyone’s pocket as its dimensions are 98 x 35 x 165 mm. It has a sleek black finish and simplistic shape, which makes the device look quite slick. Overall the device looks promising; it could be the future of sharing multimedia.

    This is really cool looking, and something I’ve only imagined from the movies. Is there anyone reading this who has actually used a Light Touch? I love gadgets and this is one I would love to add to my collection.
