From the Author:

HMD design for VR, industrial & military display systems:
This first-ever guide to HMD design contains a history of HMD design, a unique compilation of optical designs, a discussion of how head and neck anatomy drives HMD requirements, guidelines for preventing eye strain and cybersickness, a new model for stereo imagery, groundbreaking text on replacing traditional anthropometric methods with ones that really work, guidelines for testing HMDs for utility and user acceptance, a futuristic look at replacing clumsy manual interfaces with brain-actuated control, and much more. The authors of the 12 chapters are experts in HMD design and evaluation. They come from government labs, private industry, and academia. This text is essential for anyone involved with HMDS, body-mounted computers, personal displays, and virtual reality.

From the Back Cover:

Create optimum HMDs for the 21st century! You have found the first guide to head-mounted displays (HMDs) that places the emphasis where it belongs on the end-user. This volume addresses key disciplines for future head-mounted virtual reality (VR), industrial and military display systems. It gives you a solid understanding of factors critical to end-user acceptance: user-centered design, imaging and optics, anthropometry, safety, human factors, visual perception, and system testing. Expert contributors focus on end-user needs to help you meet the toughest challenges of designing HMDs. They show you how to: Lind human task performance to HMD system properties; Make the right design trade-offs to optimize human performance; Present high-quality, well-aligned imagery; Accomodate a diverse range of head shapes and sizes; Assess limits for head-supported weight and size; Use correct models to present stereoscopic imagery; Test HMDs for utility and user acceptance. HMD visual displays, image alignment, head and neck strain, and brain-actuated control are explored indepth. You also have access to a superb categorization of HMD optical design, and a state-of-the-art model for stereoscopic viewing. From basic optical parameters to supporting HMDs with head-tracking data, this guide covers the important aspects of designing cutting-edge HMDs for the designer, user, and buyer of next-generation devices and systems.
