A new handheld projector was launched via indiegogo crowd funding website which was designed to transform any surface into an 80-inch interactive touchscreen.
People seems to think that’s its a groundbreaking idea, as the projector has already received over $200,000 in pledges and it’s almost ready to make its way from being a really cool concept to the production line with only $55,000 more in pledges.
The indiegogo funding campaign has approximately three more weeks to raise $55,000 which seems pretty feasible at this point. The TouchPico is a tiny handheld projector which runs in Android, it has the ability to create a projected interface and uses wireless streaming which allows you to interact with the streaming projection using an infrared stylus.
According to the creators: “TouchPico is magic…well, not really. It is pretty high-tech. Our infrared detection technology tracks the stylus and allows you to control and interact with the image that is projected on any surface at 40 frames per second.”
“The stylus has a tiny infrared emitter. Its signal is captured by the TouchPico’s tiny built-in infrared camera and processed by an image processor to convert it into touch screen coordinates. TouchPico is a portable, handheld gadget for those on the go. It’s slightly heavier than a Samsung S4 phone and just about the same size.”
