Lenovo is beefing up its efforts in smartphone innovation by offering new technology that has only existed in the virtual world.
The Chinese tech giant showcased a new technology called Smart Cast that can serves as a projector built inside a smartphone. While we have already seen smartphones with projectors, Lenovo's new technology stands apart with its rotating projector module that can be used to display a virtual keyboard on any surface.
As shown by Lenovo, Smart Cast actually projects an interactive keyboard on the any surface that can be used for typing or even play games. Lenovo is not yet ready with a device to launch, but it certainly puts the company on the forefront of next-gen technology.
Lenovo also has a demo video to explain how the Smart Cast smartphone actually works. In the video, the handset's top area is fitted to a Pico projector that works like a normal projector to cast movies, videos, shows and games on a bigger screen. But as you rotate the module, the set-up transforms into a virtual keyboard projector that understands gestures, Tech App reports.
A retractable kickstand will also be added on the rear panel to give the handset a standing position so that the projection is done perfectly.
Lenovo hasn't revealed when exactly the new technology will be integrated into smartphones, but the company has surely spiked interest among its fans by showcasing its future plans.
