Head-mounted display controls video, designed in Tokyo

By Lawrence Bonk on Jul 27 2010 - 7:43pm

The world of head-mounted display systems is getting more crowded, isn’t it? Satoshi Nariai, of the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo, is about to help it get even more crowded. His head-mounted Mobile Video Communication System is a conceptual work of wonder.

It features acceleration and position sensors built into a head-mounted display, with a remote camera that moves with your body. Mr. Nariai sees a potential use for the device in teleconferencing, where it would allow for eye-to-eye conservation. Of course, both of you will be wearing giant cyborg attachments right near your eyeballs but hey teleconferencing is due for an upgrade.

Wanna see a video of the device in action? Well you are in luck.
