This paper presents an approach of using a steerable projector and camera unit in order to augment instrumented environments with projected virtual objects. The environment appears to be covered with a kind of invisible virtual layer on which images, texts, videos, computer desktops and other virtual objects can be placed. By steering the projector beam on particular surfaces the objects placed on them are made visible as if the projector were a virtual torch light.
