I wonder if it is difficult to use. It seems like you'd block the projection with your own shadow when you try to draw.

I like the pen concept. Perhaps one day projection screens will be replaced with large flat-screen monitors in meeting areas. A pen would make a nice replacement for a mouse in such an environment.
