Title: Head mounted display using single display including only one liquid crystal shutter

Abstract: A head mounted display may include a single liquid crystal display element. The display element may successively generate left and right image pairs. A beam slitter may be utilized to successively provide a first image to the left eye and a subsequent image to the right eye and so on so that a stereoscopic image may be produced from a single display element. As a result, the power consumption, cost, size and weight of the head mounted display may be reduced in some embodiments.
