Abstract:

THIS PROJECT WILL DEVELOP A BODY-MOUNTED, HEAD-UP, VIDEO DISPLAY TERMINAL (VDT) CAPABLE OF PRESENTING TEXT OR GRAPHICS IMAGES TO A USER. THIS VDT WILL CONSIST OF TWO MAJOR PARTS OF HARDWARE, THE DISPLAY MODULE AND THE BASE UNIT CONNECTED BY A CABLE. THE VDT USES A NEW DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY: A TYPE OF MONOCLE, WORN BELOW ONE EYE, THAT PROJECTS THE IMAGE OF A SCREEN FLOATING IN SPACE ANYWHERE THE USER LOOKS. THIS VIRTUAL SCREEN HAS A RESOLUTION OF 720 BY 280 PIXELS AND CAN DISPLAY 25 LINES OF TEXT WITH 80 CHARACTERS PER LINE. THE VDT IS A RELEVANT SOLUTION TO THE NEED FOR A SMALL, LIGHTWEIGHT, OUTPUT DEVICE THAT CAN BE ATTACHED TO THE USER'S BODY. IT CAN REPLACE HEAVY, BULKY NOTEBOOKS IN CROWDED SPACECRAFT, AND PROVIDES EQUIVALENT DATA TO CREW MEMBERS IN A MORE CONVENIENT, EFFICIENT MANNER.
