This, according to Lenovo, is the world’s first laser projection smartphone—and the fact that it recognizes gestures also means that it can turn any surface upon which its images appear into a touchscreen.
PocketLint reports from the Lenovo Tech World conference that the phone, called Smart Cast, features a built-in laser pico projector and a “gesture-based control system.” At the conference, it was used to throw films onto a wall, as well a qwerty keyboard onto a desk and a musical keyboard onto a tabletop, both of which allow the user to interact with them. The phone has a built in kickstand to hold it in place while your hands are busy.
The guys at PocketLint note that there seems to be little latency, which is a very good thing—but that’s about it in terms of details. While it’d definitely a real product, there’s no word on when or where it will be avaialble, let alone mow much it will cost. [PocketLint]
