The Sony Xperia Touch lets you do a lot of things on different kinds of surfaces. You can draw or write on the wall or on the floor without leaving any ugly marks. A film or TV show can be projected onto the wall or floor for your viewing pleasures. You can enjoy a board game without the actual board. The Sony Xperia Touch is a smart projector that transforms any surface into an Android device.

GSMArena reported that the Sony Xperia Touch is an ultra short throw projector. In other words, it's a smart device that projects a touchable Android user interface on any surface. The Xperia Touch can project images up to 100 inches while it sits around 15 inches from the surface. The Android UI can be viewed or used either in coffee table mode or wall mode.

One of its best assets is its portability. The Xperia Touch is small enough to carry around in a bag anywhere you go. That means owners can bring it to the office to make presentations or to a picnic so they can play a game on the picnic bench.

ARS Technica described the Sony Xperia Touch as similar to a smartphone but without the screen. The Touch is actually a metal box that measures 134mm x 143mm x 69mm and comes with the common components found in a smartphone. Its main difference, aside from how it looks, is the LCoS laser projector. The Sony Xperia Touch is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 650 chipset and comes with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, a built-in battery and stereo speakers.

When the Sony Xperia Touch was unveiled at the 2017 Mobile World Congress, it was introduced as an actual device. A huge step for the company after it made the rounds showing the smart projector as a mere concept. The Sony Xperia Touch is available at a rather expensive price of around $1,500 to $1,700. Pre-orders for the smart projector will begin on June 16.
