This technical report describes augmentation of a rigidly-coupled projector-camera system with laaster pointers. A projector-camera system can be used to determine the pose of the projector relative to a display surface, so that a projection of any desired geometry can be made on the surface. There are also algorithms that are more projective in nature to generate a desired projection. This report describes how laster pointers support these computations.
