This AR helmet claiming to have 100 degrees field of view. So is that possible?

    Why not I think one VR rig was aiming for 110 degrees, and I think with peripheral vision we have nearly 180 degrees FOV so they still have some ways to go for full immersion as opposed to wearing goggles immersion.

    Yeah, still some ways to go for full immersion. But according to their KS page, they claim to have the largest AR field of view though, not VR.

    I thought AR was just VR with transparency or live stereoscopic camera feeds.

    This looks interesting however it is not streoscopic 3D (cannot do SBS mode with that lens) and more importantly no 6dof independent position and orientation based head tracking. A true AR device must have these features, Hololens from Microsoft looks to be in the right direction.
