    To reiterate: All three Xperia Z3 devices can work with the controller to serve as screens for PS4 games.
  • Richard Trenholm 9/3/2014 3:00:46 PM
    And they're waterproof, so you can play your PS4 games even if you're in the bath, shower or hot tub.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:00:54 PM
    And yes, they do still play Candy Crush Saga too.
  • Richard Trenholm 9/3/2014 3:01:14 PM
    Kaz is back on stage.

    Looks like we're wrapping up.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:01:47 PM
    Read the full first take: Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-QX1
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:02:16 PM
    Quite an onslaught of products there, Sony.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:02:46 PM
    But alas, no proprietary phone-only VR headset accessory. Maybe next year.

    Before we go, we're talking Life Space UX. Introduced at CES in January, now it's coming to Europe.
  • Richard Trenholm 9/3/2014 3:04:09 PM
    4K Ultra Short Throw Projector, coming to the US in September, will cross the pond and land in Europe in Summer 2015.

    So it's a box that sits on the floor at the base of a wall and projects a 4K image on the wall.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:04:39 PM
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:05:04 PM
    Now there's a portable version...just a 23-inch image though. Still, pretty futuristic.
  • Richard Trenholm 9/3/2014 3:05:09 PM
    There's also a portable version, which projects a 23-inch image on any wall or surface.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:05:53 PM
    If you're curious, I did a pretty cool demo of the projected button interactivity. Check the video I linked to below.

    I see by glancing at Kaz's autocue that this is the end.
  • Richard Trenholm 9/3/2014 3:06:45 PM
    Yep, that's it. If you like the look of any of these Sony doodads, check out the first takes and photos above.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:06:46 PM
    Aaand that's a wrap.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:07:14 PM
    Stay tuned to the IFA 2014 roundup for all the details.
  • Richard Trenholm 9/3/2014 3:07:34 PM
    Thanks for watching! We've been your hosts, see you next time. Be careful out there, tech fans.
  • David Katzmaier 9/3/2014 3:07:51 PM
    And don't forget to count your wows.
