Liquid Crystal Display

A liquid crystal display or LCD is a display medium which offers high luminescence, relatively cheap manufacture, and is lightweight enough to be slotted like the lenses of glasses, into HMD units that weigh less than a dozen grams. This helps to eliminate the bulk problems with wearable interface devices and full immersion systems.
