To meet that need, Fujitsu combined the high level of expertise in head mounted display
(HMD) development of US-based Kopin Corporation with its own human-centric technologies cultivated through PC and mobile device development to create an HMD designed to support a wide range of field work.
The Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation, says that existing head mounted displays
generated considerable complaints from users.
• Helmet mounted displays accounted for over 60% of the head mounted display
market in 2013; these products are expected lose market share due to growing popularity of wearable glass.
Volunteers in the study were fitted with a head mounted display
(HMD) that served as 'virtual reality goggles.' They were filmed in real time by a video camera connected to the HMD, which allowed them to view their own body standing two meters in front of them.
Head-up displays (HUDs) are also used in goggles and helmets (see head mounted display
The Sony HMZ-T1 will weigh approximately 420 grams, rather heavy for a head mounted display
, but hopefully Sony would have managed to spread the weight around ergonomically, making it feel lighter than it is - otherwise, you can kiss goodbye to watching a whole movie at a stretch.
The application segment includes holographic display, head mounted display
, and head-up display.
"[It would be] capable of generating display elements on various portions of a user's display while remaining portions of the head mounted display
are transparent to allow the user to continue to view events or occurrences within the live event," the patent says.
"By presenting stereoscopic images in a head mounted display
and tracking head movements, the user's viewpoint is automatically updated, giving a 360 degree virtual experience.
