The need to carry laptops and tablets is going to reduce now, all thanks to a device which can convert any surface into a touchscreen.
TouchPico, a new crowdfunded Indigogo project, is a neatly packed Android PC with a in-built projector. Imagine playing Subway Surfer, but not within the boundaries of your phone, but on an 80-inch expanse. That, precisely, is what TouchPico does.
The projector runs Android 4.0 and has access to all Google Playstore apps. Therefore, you can open your favourite apps to read a book, watch a movie, surf the weband that’s all on an 80-inch screen. Besides entertainment, this projector can also be used for professional work like presentations or drawing interactive tables; it can also prove an instrumental tool for students and teachers as well.
On the hardware side, TouchPico has a 1GB of RAM, 1.6 GHz dual-core ARM Cortex A9 processor and features a wireless mouse and audio output. The projector includes a port for HDMI input and also supports streaming. Storage can be expanded via a memory card. Its lamp has a light output of at least 80 lumens. However, the drawback is that it only works with Wi-Fi.
The funding campaign of TouchPico ends in August, and it is most likely to be launched by October. The creators of TouchPico aim to raise $55 million through the crowdfunding project and have raised close to $100,000 till now. The device costs $499, but is available for $329 for a limited period.

A cheaper version of the flagship One M8; the One E8, and the Desire 616 dual-SIM device.The price of HTC one E8 is Rs 34,900 while that of Desire 616 is Rs 16,900. Initially HTC faced some serios challenges in the smartphone making, along with the heavy losses of approx $100 million in Q4 2013 alone.India being one of the biggest smartphone growth markets in the world, the company really needs its new batch of devices to do well.
The company has been planning to concentrate on the mid-range segment (Rs 15,000 to Rs 25,000 priced smartphones) and the premium segment.
As already stated,the HTC One E8 is basically a cheaper version of the One M8. Although it’s the polycarbonate equivalent to the metal-bodied One M8, there’s no denying that this is a good looking device and the polycarbonate doesn’t seem to have a very ‘plasticky’ feel.

It’s price is Rs 16,900 Which might hold back the Desire 616′s popularity and the fact that it can face competition from cheaper Chinese devices such as Xiaomi’s Mi3 priced at Rs 14999.
