Occlusive Optical See-Through Displays in a Collaborative Setup

A collaborative 3D environment in which opaque virtual objects fly around in see-through head-mounted displays.

Augmented-reality wearable display with full occlusion; pattern filter; display case with a light surface.

In some augmented-reality applications, a clear and undelayed view of the real scene is extremely important (for example, face-to-face meetings, medical applications, and outdoor experiences). Future research will explore how this head-mounted display can perform in those practical applications.
