A compact, wide-FOV optical design for head-mounted displays

We present a new optical design for head-mounted displays (HMD) which has an exceptionally wide field of view (FOV). It can cover even the full human FOV. It is based on seamless lenses and screens curved around the eyes. The proof-of-concept prototypes are promising, and one of them far exceeds the human FOV, although the effective FOV is limited by the… CONTINUE READING
