Head Up Display is any transparent display that presents data without requiring users to look away from their usual viewpoints
OpticalHead Mounted Displayis a wearable display that has the capability of reflecting projected images as well as allowing the user to see through it.
Eye Tap is a device that is worn in front of the eye that acts as a camera to record the scene available to the eye as well as a display to superimpose a computer generated imaginery on the original scene available to the eye
Head (also Helmet) Mounted Display is a display device, worn on the head or as part of a helmet, that has a small display optic in front of one (monocular HMD) or each eye (binocular HMD)
Virtual Retinal Display is a display technology that draws a raster display directly onto the retina of the eye.
WEARABLE 3D MOTION TRACKER
The glasses improves the solutions for User Experience. The device can take data metrics from users. Binocular mobile eye tracking glasses for usability testing, shopper research, driving studies, sports & professional training, for mobile neuro-marketing, applications in neurosciences and virtual environments and other indoor and outdoor mobile eye tracking studies.

Skullyprovides you with an advanced situational awareness system, showing navigation and blind spot data, allowing you to stay focused on the most important part of your ride - the road
The device display turn indicators, distance to your next turn, current speed and speed limit and estimated time of arrival. HUD lets you know what lane to be in for your next maneuver, as well as alerts you if you exceed the speed limit. It even warns you of potential traffic delays and upcoming safety camera locations.
Two micro projectors attached to the glasses beam images from a windows or android device onto a transportable pad. This special retro-reflective pad bounces these beams back to your face 120 times a second, so that you see those images in three dimensions in clear HD 720p, with 24 bits of color.
Google Glass Camera has the ability to take photos and record 720p HD video. While video is recording, the screen stays on. A touchpad is located on the side of Google Glass, allowing users to control the device by swiping through a timeline-like interface displayed on the screen.
With it’s patented “Flip-Vu” technology, Optinvent’sORA-S provides a new visual experience. The display can be flipped up into true “AR” mode, directly in the line of sight for immersive experiences, or flipped down to “Glance” mode where digital information becomes less obtrusive.
Running applications under the Android operating system; text, video, email, mapping, audio and all we have come to expect from smartphones is available through this wireless personal information display system. Vuzix smart glasses offer a wearable visual connection to the Cloud, through your smartphone.
Recon Jet is an activity specific heads mounted display with a truly open platform that delivers information instantly, effortlessly and unobtrusively direct to the user's eye via a microcomputer and high-resolution widescreen display. Jet has a dual core processor, dedicated graphics, Wi-Fi, ANT+, Bluetooth, GPS, HD camera, and a comprehensive suite of sensors.
. The OmniGlass reference design is equipped with a 4-megapixel autofocus camera that delivers high quality 720p HD video, and a best-in-class display enabled by OmniVision’s high-performance OVP2200 LCOS solution. The device’s image processor is capable of supporting various wireless connections, including Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and enables on-screen display (OSD) features for augmented reality applications.
The glasses, which are still at a research stage, can show translated text in a user's first language, according to the company. The technology can also turn flat surfaces into pseudo-touchscreens.
The Oculus Rift uses two lenses in a ski mask-style head-mounted display that combine to form a 1280 x 800 display. Each eye sees 640 x 800 pixels.
