Abstract

We propose a new mobile head-mounted display, ModularHMD, that uses a modular mechanism with a manually reconfigurable structure to enable ad-hoc peripheral interaction with real-world objects and people while maintaining an immersive VR experience. We designed and built a proof-of-concept prototype of ModularHMD using a base commercial HMD and three removable display modules installed in the periphery of the HMD cowl. The user can rapidly switch between different HMD configurations according to their needs. The modules can be removed to ensure peripheral awareness of the real world, used as instant interaction devices (e.g, keyboards), and then returned to their original positions to terminate the peripheral interaction.
