Virtual Projection is a joint research project of the University of Munich (LMU), the University of Calgary and Columbia University by Dominikus Baur, Sebastian Boring, and Steven Feiner. It was presented at the CHI 2012 conference held in May in Austin, TX, USA. Virtual Projection leverages the idea of bringing optical projection to digital surfaces, thus making it just as easy to temporarily transfer information from a phone to a larger display. As virtual projections are only simulated, we can overcome some of the restrictions of their real-world inspiration. We can freely adjust distortion and transformation depending on the application's needs, as well as fix virtual projections to the display and create multiple ones at the same time.
