    Wearable scanning laser projector (WSLP) for augmenting shared space



    A novel wearable apparatus was developed for ubiquitous and augmented reality. The head-mounted projection system uses rapidly scanned lasers to display information directly onto any object using the object as a “projection screen”. The wearer’s augmented vision can be shared by his colleagues, both nearby and in remote locations.
