    Previous user studies have suggested the occurrence of symptoms of motion or simulator sickness among active spectators of handheld projector interaction. Using the well-established Simulator Sickness Questionnaire proposed by Kennedy et al. in 1993, we asked twenty-six participants if they had any indication of such symptoms after they watched a demonstration of handheld projector interaction for about half an hour.We show that handheld projector sickness can occur in rare situations, but overall it is not a substantive problem.
