A really big touchscreen Android...

Here's an interesting mash-up called the TouchJet Pond. It's an Android device that’s also a projector and uses the wall/screen as a touchscreen. It can project an 854 X 480 (obviously not HD) screen up to 80 inches though it gets dimmer the larger the screen – it’s only 80 lumens.

The Pond has a dual-core processor, 2G RAM, 18 G of internal (non-expandable) storage, WiFi and Android pre-loaded. It includes micro-USB and mini-HDMI ports, an internal speaker and a headphone jack. It’s internal battery can provide power for up to 2 hours. It’s small and light: 9 oz, 4" X 4.5" X 1". 

The “touch screen” functionality actually uses a stylus to interact with the projected display using infrared to track the stylus. You can either tap the screen/wall or use a button on the stylus to simulate a tap.

Also included is a remote with a touchpad and accelerometer that allows the remote to act as an air-mouse.

So, if you’re looking for a really big Android device, this might just be it – $600, available for order at

What do you think - is there business use for a device like this?
