BOOM is an acronym for Binocular Omni-Orientation Monitor. A head-coupled stereoscopic display device. Screens and optical system are housed in a box that is attached to a multi-link arm. The user looks into the box through two holes, sees the virtual world, and can guide the box to any position within the operational volume of the device. Head tracking is accomplished via sensors in the links of the arm that holds the box. BOOM was created by Fakespace Systems Inc,.
