It could be the way we will be watching our TV programmes and PC games in the near future. Toshiba has developed a giant full-faced helmet that weighs around three kilo and facilitates the wearer to see a full 360-degree view on a 40 cm dome-shaped fish-eye screen. The idea of full 360-degree viewing is fabulous but do you guys think it’s really fabulous with that gigantic 3 kg helmet on your head?


I think it's super! Thanks for asking!!

Why wear the helmet if you can put helmet on servos attached to the chair and simply keep it at the same position relative to the head?

Or, if you are willing to sacrifice a traditional desk, simply make it large enough so all compensation for head motion can be done by distorting the image, so angular dimensions relative to the eyes remain unchanged?
