Viewing and sharing media on mobile devices are popular scenarios, however, the limited screen size results in multiple users having to gather around a single display leading to an undesirable viewing experience. Similarly, sharing a single image with a single person is cumbersome and requires several steps to complete. This demonstration paper presents an approach in which a mobile phone is coupled with a personal projector to overcome the output limitations of mobile phones. The large mobile projected display allows several users to simultaneously view media. We also present a group based sharing approach allowing users to intuitively and easily share media between mobile devices. We reverse the typical role of sharing and introduce a technique whereby the receiver of the media is responsible for performing the sharing interaction. This allows sharing with a single member or multiple members of the group. Sharing with every member of the group is also easily possible.
