It is roughly divided into binocular and monocular, and there are types such as "non-transparent type" and "transparent type" that completely cover the eyes. It can also be classified into 3D / 2D.

Normal,EyeTry to form an image imaged as far as possible in order to suppress fatigue.by thisEye strainCan be suppressed.Since it is possible to project different images to the left and right eyes, it is possible to create a three-dimensional image by slightly changing the left and right images.Of the eyeballconvergenceWith hornsFocal lengthIn this case as well, it causes eye strain.Completely obscure the outside worldHeadphonesIf "visual" and "hearing" can be controlled in combination with, a more complete "virtual reality" can be realized.

TraditionaldisplayHas to look at the device, whereas this display does not.Also,Hat,glassesBecause it is in the shape of, it is convenient to carry and can be used at any time.

It is very power-saving because it uses a small display.Especially when a large virtual display is formed, it produces a considerable energy saving effect.However, since it is not possible for multiple people to see a common display, it does not make much sense when viewing a common image.

The consumer HMD is1990 eraIt has begun to be released by each manufacturer.Around 2010 when smartphones became widespread[Source required]Goggles in the shape of setting a smartphone and using the screen have also become widespread.[1][2], You can also make your own with cardboard etc.[3], Inexpensive self-made kits are also on sale[1].

Display method

When you put it on, you can't see what's going on outside, and you'll feel like you're in a completely different world.Since the outside cannot be seen, it is necessary to consider the safety of the user.
Video Transparency (Video See-Through)
Head up displayIt is also a kind of.When worn, it is not possible to see the outside, but the outside is shown on the display through the camera, so the user can move safely.
Optical transmission (optical see-through, Optical See-Through)
It is also a type of head-up display.The display deviceHalf mirrorIt is made of and you can see the outside.Some have a display device on only one eye.In addition, displays using holographic elements have also been developed, which is exactly what it is.glassesIt is also possible to project images on a light guide plate placed at a short distance, such as the lens of the above, and realize "glasses that show images" as depicted in SF.Optical multilayer filmHalf mirrorBy using, it is possible to see through the outside while displaying only the necessary information on the surface of the display board.

Projection method

Virtual image projection
A virtual image is formed by using a half mirror or the like so that an image can be observed.
Retinal projection
Eye OfCrystalline lensUsingretinaDirectly imaged on.The user can see a clear image even with myopia or hyperopia.However, it is very difficult to implement because it depends on the eye movement.

Degree of Freedom (DoF)

3 degrees of freedom (3DoF)
A method to detect the inclination of the XYZ3 axes.Although it is cheap, there are restrictions on the operation of VR content because location information cannot be obtained (viewing live-action / pre-rendered VR video content with a fixed viewpoint position is not a problem).
6 degrees of freedom (6DoF)
A method of detecting position information in three-dimensional space in addition to tilt.While you can experience more immersive VR content, there was a problem that the system became large and expensive, but in recent yearsOculus QuestThere are also products that realize 6DoF with only the built-in camera.

For example, if a 100G turn is performed with the weight of the helmet increased by 9g, the burden on the pilot will increase by 900g).Therefore, in the development of head-mounted displays for fighter aircraft, the issue was how much weight increase could be suppressed while satisfying the required performance.afterwardsCarbon fiberDue to the development of processing technology, very lightweight helmets have been developed, but the cost has become a problem.

For training purposes, it is used to show images indoors without using a large screen in parachute and shooting training.

The boom in the 1990s failed with disappointment among many users and investors, and these technologies remained unnoticeable for the next 20 years or so.[6].

After that, the conventional problems were overcome to some extent by improving the technology, andGyro sensor,AccelerometerEquipped withSmartphoneIn the 2010s, it was announced that VR-related head-mounted displays would be marketed one after another at a price range that can be purchased by individuals, and it was regained attention.[6][8].Cloud Funding OfKickstarterAppeared in and became a hot topicOculus RiftWas also talked about on Kickstartertreadmillof"Virtuix OmniVR experience is also possible by combining[8][9]..In addition, the motion controller "Razer Hydra'[10][11] And shockfeedbackMulti-sensory suit "ARAIG" with[12] Has also been announced on Kickstarter, and by combining these, you can expect a more immersive VR experience.Besides this, it looks likeSunglassesWe are trying to reduce the weight with styleNVIDIA"Near-Eye Light Field Displays"[13] And made a new VR experience possible by seamlessly fusing past images and current imagesSony"PROTOTYPE-SR"[14] Those that assumed various scenes such as were announced.

AV equipment

When it first appeared on the market, it was talked about that even in a small room, you could enjoy a sense of realism comparable to that of a large TV, but soon the following disadvantages and disadvantages caused problems and sales were sluggish.There are various names such as goggle-type TVs and glass TVs, but there is no clear mainstream name yet.

  • It is not possible to share and watch the same sense of presence with a large number of people at once.It is necessary to prepare the equipment for the number of viewers, and the financial burden is not ridiculous.
