Touchjet Wave turns any TV into a smart TV

Want a smart TV, but don’t want to spend hundreds replacing your existing set? You could get the Touchjet Wave, which turns any TV into a smart TV.

It’s a device you attach to the top of the TV. It uses infrared to turn your TV screen into a touchscreen. It also packs the Android operating system, and reads your presses and swipes, translating them into gestures it can recognise.

Clip it on, and you can play games using your TV as a massive touchscreen, stream movies, music and TV shows, browse the web. Plus, you can use your set as a whiteboard or a display for a presentation, send images to it from your smartphone, and control it using your phone. Basically, anything you can do with a smart TV.

Don’t want to cover your TV in fingerprints and smudges? No problem – just use the soft-touch stylus that comes bundled with it.

Installation is a doddle. Clip it to your TV, plug it into the HDMI port, and tap a few dots on-screen to calibrate it. And that’s it. It fits any TV up to 80in and runs all Android apps compatible with its Android 4.4 KitKat OS.

It’s cheaper than buying a new TV – you can pick up a Touchjet Wave for only $99 (£63). It’s passed its funding goal and will ship in March next year.
