Sony Intros Android-Powered Xperia Touch Projector

Mobile World Congress 2017 has Sony unveil a surprise device-- the Xperia Touch is an Android-powered projector able to turn any surface into a touchscreen while acting as a digital hub of sorts.

The idea is family members input events and leave notes on the interface for all to see, turning it into a digital notice board for the home. Google Assistant provides voice control, and the built-in battery promises around 1 hour of use on a single charge.

The projector also carries a 13MP camera and speakers, allowing it to handle Skype video chats, while SXRD projection technology detects gestures and taps. Maximum projection sizes reaches 80-inch at 1366 x 768 resolution, and images can be projected on both vertical and horizontal surfaces.

LG Display: Samsung TV Panel Supplier?

According to Bloomberg LG Display is supplying LCD panels to no other than rival Samsung, replacing a Sharp-Foxconn joint venture as supplier to the biggest TV maker in the world.

If the unnamed "people with direct knowledge of the matter" are in the right such a deal would be a first for the two S. Korean rivals. Officially the two companies are "in talks" on LCD supply, but no further elaboration is available as yet. The Bloomberg report adds LG is ready to supply as many as 3 million LCD panels to Samsung in 2016.

LG and Sony Build Speakers Directly in OLED Panel

LG and Sony reveal what is essentially the same idea at CES 2017-- OLED TVs with speakers built right into the display panel. LG dubs the technology "Crystal Sound," while its Japanese rival calls it "Acoustic Surface."

The concept for the technology is based on the wafer-thin nature of OLED panels. A pair of tiny speaker drivers can deliver audio signals to the panel, causing it to vibrate in order to produce sound. The two companies claim the result is more immersive than traditional TV speakers, since the sound comes directly from the screen, as opposed to from below or beside it.

An Retro LCD TV for a More Vintage Era

Japanese TV maker Doshisha presents an alternative to the ultra-thin TVs of today-- the Vintage Taste set features pleasingly chunky retro stylings, even if it packs a modern 20-inch LCD panel.

In fact the Vintage Taste features all connectivity options expected from a TV on the contemporary market, including USB and HDMI ports, LAN, AV and digital audio outputs. However the housing comes straight from the 1960's, with mahogany-red wood and off-white plastic construction, not to mention functional volume and channel switching knobs complete with satisfying ka-chunk sounds. Oh, and it sits on four-stilted legs.

Amusingly, since as mentioned earlier the TV is a modern LCD number, the housing meant for a cathode ray tube doubles as a storage space-- one can open the top to house other electronics, such as a DVD player or games console, or maybe hide a bottle of booze.
