HMD

A Head Mounted Display (HMD) is a device which fits over the head, typically blocking out the outside world, and fully immersing the user in a virtual world by providing slightly different views to each eye, and containing a tracking system, to track the position of the user's head, updating the image to follow that movement.

Early HMDs, popular in the mid 90s, were large, clunky, and caused motion sickness and neck pain in many of their wearers. This was the greatest cause of the decline of immersive VR in the late 90s.
