Tag: Head-Mounted Display

A head-mounted display, also known as a virtual reality headset or VR headset, is a portable device that provides users with visual content. Head-mounted displays or HMDs are major hardware used in virtual reality systems that enable users to experience VR. Head-mounted displays have special LCD lenses that send two different video signals to each user’s eye, thus ensuring a stereoscopic view of computer-generated content. This helps users see a 3D image instead of flat ones like when watching TV. VR headsets also have speakers for providing audio data. HMD are usually built in the way to be capable of isolating users from real world in order to properly immerse them within a virtual environment. Popular models of head-mounted displays are: Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Playstation VR, and HTC Vive Pro.
