actually projectors can beam onto the back of a screen, or even scuffed
plexiglass or ground plate glass, and then people can walk in front of it
just fine. Also, projectors commonly run HID bulbs which require a
start-up sequence, but can also use a halogen bulb, which can be turned on
and off at will. Depending on how large an image you want, and whether
you have the space for a rear-projection, and how bright the image needs
to be, this could certainly be done.
and it would look like the star trek (original series) display screens.

Projectors require the space between it and the display surface to be
unobstructed, thusly creating an 3d area for it to exist, which I don't
want. I'd like to put this sort of setup in smaller spaces where you
might pass by it, like a hallway or stairwell, or some such.
Additionally projectors have more upkeep then a crap LCD, cannot stay on
for long periods of time, for the most part require a fan to operate,
and cannot instantaneously turn on/off.
