About this project
GoTouch is the portable, easy-to-use device that instantly turns any TV or projector into a giant interactive whiteboard. Businesses and schools across Korea have been helping us test GoTouch for more than a year. Now we’re ready to bring it to the rest of the world.
GoTouch brings highly-accurate infrared technology to the TV or projector in your office... the one in your client’s office... the one in your child’s classroom… or even the one at home.
And GoTouch is internet connected, so your colleagues or students can all join in, using their phones or tablets, no matter where in the world they are.
Journalists and Bloggers: Access the GoTouch Press Kit
GoTouch connects instantly and wirelessly to any TV or projector. It tracks what you write or draw on screen with 4K Ultra HD accuracy. A rechargeable battery means GoTouch doesn’t have to be plugged into anything during your presentation.
You can collaborate remotely using the free iOS or Android apps, which also let you display and annotate documents, websites and videos.
GoTouch uses a 4K Ultra HD camera to track the infrared light in the GoTouch Pen, giving it pinpoint accuracy. The camera runs at 100 frames per second, which is more than three times faster than the refresh rate of most TVs. This means you don't notice any lag at all when you draw or write.
Drawing on screen with the GoTouch Pen feels just as responsive as drawing on a regular whiteboard.
The GoTouch Pen has an infrared sensor in the nib. GoTouch senses this light with 4K, Ultra HD accuracy and ignores unintentional touches from your fingers, palm or arm.
Setup is so simple, you’ll have GoTouch working in minutes. (Or in our case, 50 seconds.)
First, connect your phone or computer to your TV or projector. You can do this with an HDMI cable, or wirelessly with Apple TV or a similar device. Then, pair GoTouch with your phone or computer using Bluetooth. Place GoTouch on your table and launch the app. That's it. You’re ready to go.
UPDATE - GoTouch Setup Tips & Tricks
Many of you have asked for a more in-depth setup video, that explains each step of the process, in detail. Your wish is our command. Watch this tips and tricks video, where we show you how to ceiling-mount GoTouch, connect it to a TV using a Galaxy S7 and a Google Chromecast.
The GoTouch App is already available for download on the iOS App Store and the Google Play Store, so you can check it out for yourself. The app is free, and you can use it without GoTouch to collaborate on documents remotely.
When you launch the app, you’ll be able to launch a blank whiteboard, or load a PDF, video, image or website to annotate.
Inside the app, the menu lets you select your tools and options, load a file to annotate, save, share, or change settings. You can select from several drawing tools. (Pen, Pencil, Brush, Highlighter), change the pen color, and change the line thickness.

Risks and challenges
We've been very thorough in testing GoTouch, so the risk of it not working is quite low. The main thing to watch for is to make sure you can connect your phone or tablet to your TV. This is very easy, using an HDMI adapter dongle, but you can also connect it wirelessly using an AppleTV. These devices are sold separately, so make sure you have one.
This is our first time selling a product beyond Korea. While our team is quite experienced, there could be some challenges along the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
