This is a test (myself wearing a "video-helmet", to be used with an underwater camera on a stick, to monitor the "sea-trials" of my first ROV. Do I look fat in this helmet?)

You posted this a while ago but I have a quick question, is this like an eye piece with a monitor or is it like a camera mounted helmet?

Sorry! "eyepiece with a monitor" it is. The other photos would have shown this to be a small display, hacked into a composite video head-mount display, bracketed onto a welder helmet. I will have a nice, dark, very fetching (...) piece of cloth rigged up to block out the ambient light and create a more intimate, ahem, a more "inducive" to concentration, environment. To be tried first with a camera-on-a-stick, and then on an ROV. The goal is to get as whoozy as when I played "DOOM". Without falling overboard.

Yes, there will be stereo sound too. Apparently, fish do make sounds.
