    It seems misleading to say that "any wall" can use this, as it requires rear projection. Obviously you need a special screen so the light can get through to the other side. Rear projection is already unfeasible for many people because it requires so much space.

    It has some practical uses, but frankly I don't think I'd want it. Moving your arms around for a long time would get tiring, and I don't want to sit (stand?) that close anyway.
