Half Baked Idea: Virtual Gaming Table

I was taking a look at some of the impressive RPG scenery out there for the table top RPGs I don't seem to have time to play, and I came across this post. This guy made a virtual table top by mounting a mirror on the ceiling and directing a projected image on to a table. 

A few years ago I did something similar when I was playing a D&D campaign with the DM on the other side of the country. We projected the game table onto the wall though. Projecting onto a table opens up some possibilities that might make it easier to use. For example, I could project regular tabletop games. I've been thinking of starting up a junior role playing game with my son. so this is something to keep in mind.
