An important challenge in deploying pervasive computing environments is the difficulty users have in understanding their behaviour. It has been suggested that these environments should be made intelligible by informing users about their understanding of the world. We propose the "Feedforward Torch", a technique that combines a mobile phone with a pico projector to help users in an pervasive computing environment understand what the result of their actions will be.
