Army AL&T Magazine highlighted ICT achievements in increasing quality and bringing down costs of head mounted displays (HMD) for virtual reality experiences. The article focused on the open-source designs from Mark Bolas and the ICT’s Mixed Reality Lab. Starting with early smartphone-based, foam-core folded prototypes and moving into 3D printed viewers, the lab’s research in low-cost virtual reality displays produced the Socket HMD, an open design used to inform elements of the commercial Oculus Rift headset. The article begins on page 77 of the April-June issue.
