Over the past decade a world-wide experimental effort has grown significantly to the point where today there are over half a dozen directional dark matter experiments, with four collecting data underground. Although most of the efforts employ time projection chambers with low pressure gas-based targets, R&D on novel approaches in liquids and solids is also proceeding. We review the directionality signature in dark matter searches and give the current status of this diverse experimental efforts.
