Virtual Reality Head Mounted Display

A head-mounted display or helmet mounted display (both abbreviated to '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 both eyes (binocular HMD).

A typical Head Mounted Display has either one or two small displays with lenses and semi-transparent mirrors embedded in a helmet, eye-glasses (also known as data glasses) or visor. The display units are miniaturised and may include CRT, LCDs, Liquid crystal on silicon (LCos), or OLED screens. Some manufacturers utilise many micro-displays to increase total resolution and field of view.

Head Mounted Displays differ in whether they can display just a computer generated image (CGI), show live images from the real world or a combination of both.

Most Head Mounted Displays show only a computer-generated image, sometimes referred to as a virtual image.

Some Head Mounted Displays superimpose computer generated image upon a real-world view. This is sometimes referred to as augmented reality or mixed reality. Combining real-world view with computer generated images can be done by projecting the computer generated images through a partially reflective mirror and viewing the real world directly. This method is often called Optical See-Through. Combining real-world view with CGI can also be done electronically by accepting video from a camera and mixing it electronically with computer generated images. This method is often called Video See-Through.
