Abstract

Head-mounted projective displays (HMPD’s) are a novel type of head-mounted display. A HMPD consists of a miniature projection lens mounted upon the user’s head and retroreflective sheeting material placed strategically in the environment. First, the imaging concept of a HMPD is reviewed and its potential advantages and disadvantages are discussed. The design and a bench prototype implementation are then presented. Finally, the effects of retroreflective materials on the imaging properties and the optical properties of HMPD’s are comprehensively investigated.
