Are the new phablet-size phones still not big enough for your favorite smartphone activities? If so, you’ll be pleased to learn about TouchJet’s newest invention. The TouchJet Wave is a television peripheral created to extend the Android 4.4 Kitkat ecosystem to big-screen TVs.
The Wave features touch-control technology, which allows users to literally turn their TV screen into a touch screen thanks to infrared technology. Compatible with any display that has an HDMI port and spans 20″ to 60″ diagonally, the new device attaches to the top of the user’s TV and connects through an HDMI port.
New customers only need to tap a few dots on the screen to calibrate the Wave before engaging in some serious fun.
Although it seems complicated, the Wave simply tracks finger movements and sends them back to the light processing unit, which converts data for Android input.
Additionally, users can utilize the included soft-touch stylus for precise selections or editing. The Wave also sports 1GB of DDR3 RAM, 8GB of onboard flash storage, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi, and Bluetooth. At just $99, the opportunities are endless.
A crowdsourced project, TouchJet Wave aimed to raise $100,000 when it launched on Indiegogo three weeks ago. It has so far raised over $600,000.
