By The Editors

Welcome to Kind of a Big Deal, a daily roundup of great sales on the brands and items you love (tech, shoes, style, travel, etc.), as well as great new products. Please note: Deals are subject to change at the whim of the merchants mentioned.

Sony Xperia Touch
This toaster-sized projector/tablet turns any flat surface (walls, tables, floors) into an interactive touchscreen. The 23-inch Android-powered device, which utilizes wifi, infrared and a 60 fps camera to capture motion, is now available in the U.S. on Amazon … though it’s currently backordered (maybe try eBay).

Ketzal VW Vanagon Organizer
A handsome leather seatback organizer for the #vanlife community, perfect to store mapes, chargers, flashlights, etc. Currently $25 off.

Logitech Harmony Smart Control
One day we’ll have a smart control that works with every TV, console and cable box we have … or maybe Alexa will just run our lives. Until then, use the Harmony and an accompanying phone app to control 270,000 devices. Now 39% off.

Sale apparel and shoes are up to 40% off … and now an extra 20% with the code FALL2017 and extra 10% with the code WELCOME17. All with free shipping. (H/t Dealnews).

Ghost Whisperer Jacket
Dubbed “the world’s lightest full-featured hooded down jacket” (it’s only 8 oz.), the GW can also be compressed into its own pocket for storage. It’s now just $160 — $15 less than the last time it went on sale this summer and a bit over half off — as part of Mountain Hardwear’s huge outdoor gear sale.

Outerknown Project Nomadic
New, cool minimalist styles (tees, short sleeves, thermals, shorts, etc.) from Kelly Slater’s lifestyle brand, which focuses on sustainability and fair trade. Starting at just $32.
