    This lead to the iPod hat. Indirectly of course. but the same idea. Highly personal viewing.

    Actually I have serious doubts about there being cathode ray tubes small enough for this to work when this picture was taken. I assume this to be a mock up device. Not an operating example.

    The guy in the picture is Hugo Gernsback, noted inventor, author, publisher, futurist and the creator of the modern science fiction genre. The TV visor was a mockup he built to illustrate something he thought would be invented in the coming years. And he was right; you can buy video goggles today.
