If rear projection computer monitors are anything like rear projection TVs, then they use cathode ray tubes (crts) to fire electrons onto a photo reactive material to produce light for the image. So as far as I can see it wouldn't be possible. You would be firing electrons onto a non photo reactive surface (e.g. a wall) so there would be no image. Also, it might be a minor radiation hazard.
