Alternatively, letters could be plotted across the fingers and palm from top to bottom.

Users would then use their thumb to "press" the various keys on both hands.

The projector can be mounted on an arm of a pair of eyeglasses and the camera may be mounted on an opposite arm of the eyeglasses.

The users can also watch videos on the palm of their hand rather than having to hold a device in front of them.

The patent also suggests that the device could project a trackpad onto a body part which would allow for finer control.
