Binocular Omni Orientation Monitor

The Binocular Omni Orientation Monitor or BOOM is one of the oldest VR displays, and direct ancestor to the HMD. It consists of a 3-D display device suspended from a weighted boom that can swivel freely. The viewer holds the viewport of the device to their eyes, viewing the 3-D environment stereoscopically through it, without supporting any of its weight on their neck.

The boom's position and orientation communicates the user's point of view to the computer.
