Mobile devices are increasingly being fitted with more than one display, presenting a new breed of Mobile Multi-Display Environments (MMDEs). It is however still unclear how the extra display fits within the mobile devices' ecology in terms of visualisation and interaction. My research explores the alignment between multiple displays in a mobile environment and how different alignments affect usability and the choice of a suitable interaction technique. In order to investigate those properties and adapt them to various use cases, I will build a steerable projection system to study different alignments, then analyse visual separation effects in MMDEs and finally explore the possibilities offered when the displays are overlapping.
