In recent years, smartphone innovations have plateaued; screens have gotten bigger, features more advanced, but no company has created an industry shifting technological or functional leap in any way. Lenovo has grown tired of waiting for that leap. They’re moving forward themselves with a smartphone that brings something legitimately new the table: a projector that beams a touchscreen or virtual keyboard onto any surface. Lenovo’s Smart Cast – the world’s first smartphone with a built-in laser projector – can project onto walls much like similar projector devices, but it goes a step further with “surface mode.” Activated when the Smart Cast is propped up on its kickstand, “surface mode” beams a variety of virtual keyboards or a full touchscreen onto the surface in front of it. Want to play the piano? Type an email on the go? Shoot some zombies in Dead Trigger 2? The Smart Cast gives you a new way to control anything you want on your smartphone. It’s bold, and highly ambitious, but genuine innovation – after years of incremental upgrades – is always welcome. The Smart Cast has just been announced at Lenovo’s Tech World, expect further details to drop soon.
