Beijing: China’s Shanghai Easi company has unveiled a Lazertouch projector which has an ability to turn walls, tables and other things into touchscreens.

To detect touches, Lazertouch puts out a laser that is parallel with the surface.

The projector is portable, with a 13,600mAh battery inside. It runs on Android so one can actually have a touchscreen-optimised OS (and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.) to work with, the Verge reports.

The projector is expected to cost USD 650. (ANI)
