TV Helmet Concept from the 1960s


Walter Pichler's TV-Helmet was made in 1967. What's sad is that today's head mounted displays are no less obtrusive to wear. (Although updating this headpiece with a 1080p panel and 7.1 audio would go a long ways towards getting me to put one on.)

The helmet is constructed of polyester, plexiglas, PVC, aluminum, and inflatable elements (AKA WaterWings). (Sorry, mid century material fetishists, no asbestos.)
