New handset will turn your TV into a touchscreen tablet

Tech company Touchjet has invented a device called the Wave, which transforms televisions into touchscreen tablets.

The Wave uses a set-top camera with an embedded infrared sensor to track finger movements, before transforming your television into an Android 4.4 KitKat tablet.

Helen Thomas, CEO of Touchjet, told Techradar, “This is the experience of the future. It's all interactive, and kids understand touch.”

Families and friends can use the Wave to play interactive games such as Angry Birds and to complete work on Microsoft Office or Google Docs. 

Crowdfunding: the future of television?

The Crystal Maze

Sites such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo allow fundraisers to outline their plans, offering investors benefits such as signed merchandise and exclusive events in accordance with the size of their donation, rather than a financial return.

Nineties game show The Crystal Maze hit headlines earlier this month when its creators launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise £500,000 to bring the show back as a live immersive experience.
