Submission + - Where are the high-res head-mounted displays?

vivian writes: Ever since 1996, when I first set eyes on a Sony GlassTron head mounted display in Japan, I have been awaiting the day that a lightweight head-mounted display came along that actually had decent resolution and didn't look like a brick tied to your face. The closest contender to date seems to be the these from Vuzix, and they are partially transparent too, which is great, but as with every other unit I have found, they only offer video quality — 640x480 or so. Could we petition some manufacturer or other to actually produce something that had a minimum of 1024x768 @30-60hz refresh and stereo vision capable? Extra karma if they incorporate head tracking.
Given there have been a number of other articles on Slashdot, I can't be the only one here that is eagerly awaiting something that could actually be a viable alternative to a PC monitor — especially for gaming or 3d graphics work. Perhaps we could petition a manufacturer to make what we actually want?
