Virtual Reality hardware in film

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?

Strange Days

Johnny Mnemonic

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?


look at those CRT screens!

How could you forget Lawnmower Man!!

Oh yeah, the VR set that can suck the life out of you! Cautionary tale Oculus Rift users…

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