Thin computing clients, such as smartphones and tablets, have experienced recent growth in display resolutions and graphics processing power. In this poster, we show how to leverage these trends to create an experimental wide field of view, 3D stereoscopic head mounted display (HMD), based on two high resolution smart-phones. This HMD prototype is unique in that the graphics system is entirely onboard, allowing it to be lightweight, wireless, and convenient to use.
