This interactive projector would be far more useful than the Sony Xperia Touch

If you’re not familiar with what interactive (or augmented reality) projectors actually are, let us fill you in. Imagine a touchscreen that you can put on any flat surface imaginable. Interactive projectors do just that – they project an image that you can interact with, usually the same way you interact with a touchscreen display.

The durability test that you can watch below was made by JerryRigEverything – famous on YouTube for his non-bogus tests. As you can see in the video, the front and rear of the XZ Premium (including its cameras) are protected by Gorilla Glass 5 – this makes the phone as scratch-resistant as Apple’s and Samsung’s latest flagships. …
