Light Touch interactive projector hands on

[CES 2010] Light Blue Optics introduced its Light Touch interactive projector on the showfloor, where it brings a whole new level of interactivity to virtually anywhere you are. Virtually any flat surface can be turned into a display (somewhat like those projection keyboards that was developed for BlackBerrys all those years ago), although this one is much more potent. Coming in a relatively tiny box that is roughly half the Wii’s size, it throws a full color image that has multi-touch capability. Within the box runs the Windows CE operating system and Flash Lite support, allowing you to program tools and applications (Windows CE compatible of course) using Flash Lite or .NET software tools as you see fit. Since it can be battery-powered (as well as mains), you can tote this to shows if you want to impress your clients and future customers with an interactive display which showcases your company’s product range. It works best with a 10″ display at WVGA resolution, and comes with 15 lumens (standard video content)/35 lumens (typical symbology), USB connectivity, a microSDHC memory card slot, Wi-Fi support, 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM and a battery life of 2 hours. No idea on pricing, but Light Blue Optics say that it won’t cost a bomb. We’ve played with it for some time, and it definitely isn’t as smooth as we’d like it to be (perhaps this is just an early build of the software), but we like how it has come along so far. This would be useful to impress your business associates when making an interactive presentation, and it would work especially well as a commercial and advertising tool more than one that sits in your living room.
