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
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.
