    I’m interested in a non-head worn nearfield display, e.g. if you had 2 ipads or 2 ipad pros optically coupled to present a single high res image. This display when combined with a zero gravity recliner, eyetracking, split keyboard+mouse would allow longer (as in 6-8 hours a day) ‘real world’ use of VR as a replacement for conventional workstations. Kinda like in the matrix but with no holes/jacks in the head or the flogiston chair flogiston chair back in the 80's

    I’m currently looking at sheet fresnel magnifiers. Wondering if wearality had anything that might also fit the bill.

    A head-mounted display (or helmet-mounted display, for aviation applications), both abbreviated HMD, is a display device, worn on the head or as part of a helmet, that has a small display optic in front of one (monocular HMD) or each eye (binocular HMD). There is also an optical head-mounted display (OHMD), which is a wearable display that has the capability of reflecting projected images as well as allowing the user to see through it. A key application for HMDs is training and simulation, allowing to virtually place a trainee in a situation that is either too expensive or too dangerous to replicate in real-life. Training with HMDs cover a wide range of applications from driving, welding and spray painting, flight and vehicle simulators, dismounted soldier training, medical procedure training and more. However, a number of unwanted symptoms have been caused by prolonged use of certain types of head-mounted displays, and these issues must be resolved before optimal training and simulation is feasible.
