With the release of the production-level Rift headset, along with several other brands' take on the form factor, I'm reminded of how this kind of hardware has been depicted by production concept designers in film and tv. Not all of them had a headset. Some had other peripherals. Here are a couple of examples - any other good ones?

Until the End of the World (this is actually the camera that shoots VR imagery)

Does the IronMan mask count? It is not really vR, I guess it is AR?

not hardware, and not a film, and not VR, but AR...
