Soon, you’ll not need to use your phone at home, because your home’s walls, kitchen tables, and even backyard could have their own touchscreens.

Sony announced at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona that it’s releasing a projector. That turns any flat surface into a 23-inch HD touchscreen (80-inch maximum). Sony first announced its new Xperia Touch projector prototype last year. It was reported to be buggy and difficult to use. Since, Sony says that it has improved the product and promises that its interface is ‘fluid, fast and responsive to physical touch.’
