Projectors shrink in size, are embedded in some mobile devices, and with the miniaturization of projection technology truly mobile projected displays became possible. In this paper, the authors present a survey of the current state of the art on such displays. They give a holistic overview of current literature and categorize mobile projected displays based on mobility and different possible interaction techniques. This paper tries to aid fellow researchers to identify areas for future work.

Types Of Projected Displays

When it comes to different projected displays, we can distinguish between four types that differ in the amount of mobility they provide: Environmental Projectors, which as the name suggests are located in the environment, e.g. projectors installed in meeting rooms; Moveable Projectors which are not fixed in the environment but need to be set up before operation; Hand-Held and Body-Worn Projectors are fully mobile projectors that are either held in the hand, e.g. a projector phone, or worn on the body; Self-actuated Projectors presents the most mobile setting, in which the projector can move through the environment on its own. This categorization is visualized in Figure 1.
