Abstract
Today advanced 3D virtual environments are mostly based on either a technology known as the cave or head-mounted displays. A new type of head-mounted display, which consists of a pair of miniature projection lenses and displays mounted on the helmet and retro-reflective sheeting materials placed strategically in the environment, has been proposed as an alternative to eyepiece optics types of displays. The novel concept and properties of the head- mounted projective display (HMPD) suggests solutions to part of the problems of state-of-art visualization devices and make it extremely suitable for multiple-user collaborative environments. In this paper, we first review the concept of the HMPD and present the latest prototype developed. We then discuss its application to medical visualization and remote collaborative environments.
