SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Touchjet, the first company to create interactive Android touch technology on a large and portable scale, today announced that it was named a winner of the 2016 BIG Innovation Awards presented by the Business Intelligence Group.
Its first product, the Touchjet Pond Projector™, turns any flat surface (wall, ceiling, floor) into an interactive Android touchscreen up to 80" so families, professionals and educators can display and interact with any of the hundreds of thousands of Android apps. It was one of the top 20 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaigns. The company's second product, the Touchjet WAVE™, turns any flatscreen TV or monitor into an Android touchscreen up to 80".
"It was clear from our judges that Touchjet was clearly deserving of being recognized as a leader in innovation and we are proud to award them the 2016 BIG Innovation Award," said Russ Fordyce, managing director of the Business Intelligence Group. "Congratulations to the entire team. This is well-deserved recognition of your pursuit of excellence and creativity in solving problems."
Organizations from across the globe submitted their recent innovations for consideration in the 2016 BIG Innovation Awards. Nominations were then judged by a select group of business leaders and executives who volunteer their time and expertise to score submissions and provide feedback.
"We are honored to be recognized as an innovator, as our goal is to make an impact on how individuals interact with each other through technology," said Helen Thomas, CEO. "Touchjet takes our current technology and shares it on a large-scale to promote in-person collaboration and engagement."
Founded in 2013, Touchjet brings people together in shared experiences using its patented touch technology. The company's first product, the Touchjet Pond Projector (formerly called Touchpico), turns any surface into a giant touchscreen. The Touchjet Pond Projector had one of the most successful Indiegogo campaigns ever, securing more than $900,000 in funding. With offices in both Singapore and the United States, Touchjet has a global team of top engineers and designers who are continuing to develop innovative applications for the company's touch technology.
