On Monday, Indiegogo alum Touchjet announced, following the final round of the FCC approval, its WAVE TV tablet system will now be available on Best Buy’s website. The Touchjet WAVE turns any flat screen TV or monitor into a smart touchscreen. This is Touchjet’s second product, following the launch of the Touchjet Pond Projector in May 2015. The WAVE made its debut on Indiegogo in August 2015, meeting its goal of $100,000 within 24 hours.
“The WAVE uses bleeding edge infrared technology to track finger movements and taps across the screen. WAVE’s Light Processing Unite Translates these infrared inputs into gestures and taps that the Android system can understand.”
The company noted that the WAVE, which is available to purchase for $299.99, can attach to any flat screen up to 65″ and run any Android app, without the need to connect a laptop, or use of any additional cables. With giant touchscreen devices costing thousands of dollars, the WAVE offers the same functionality for both the business and consumer tech world as a non-obtrusive option. Touchjet also reported that with FCC approval now completed, the WAVE would begin delivering to pre-order customers.
“To pass all FCC testing and achieve availability in the US with a top retailer, 14 months after the close of a crowdfunding campaign, is quite an accomplishment. We’re delighted to now be shipping to customers who have already pre-ordered the Touchjet WAVE, so people can begin experiencing the usefulness of large touchscreen technology at home and in the workplace. We want to thank all contributors to this journey. We now have to generate sales to fund all units for backers. Therefore, it is important that our community continue to support this innovation.”
