Sony unveiled last year a concept projector product that allowed users to interact with any surface as if it was a touch screen.
The prototype was buggy and difficult to use. But a year later, the Xperia Touch as it's now called, has been vastly improved and Sony is commercializing the product.
In Spring, Sony will launch the Xperia Touch priced at 1,499 euros ($1,587) beginning in Japan and Europe and later coming to the U.S, the company announced on Monday at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona.
It runs Google's mobile operating system Android allowing users full access to apps from the Google Play store.
