I will give an overview of the physics case and feasibility of directionally detecting WIMP-like dark matter via nuclear recoils. I will introduce and discuss the state of the literature that motivates the field, and mention ongoing work to realise a large-scale directional detector with the ability to discover dark matter below the neutrino floor.
