Developed by Singapore-based start-up Touchjet, TouchPico is an interactive android-based mobile pico projector with screen casting functionality. It is able to transform any empty wall or table into an interactive 60-inch tablet using a custom-designed stylus. With the use of TouchPico, consumers can use almost any surface as a portable whiteboard for practically any purpose, from education and business meetings to watching movies and playing games on the big screen.
Watch the above trailer explaining TouchPico's features.
The team has also completed the ‘Touchjet Airview’ prototype, a software module that enables wireless connection between Touchjet devices and iPhone and Android phones. Touchjet won first place at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2014 ShowStoppers Launch.it Pitch Competition.
