abstract = {We report a new technique for building a wide-angle, lightweight, thin-form-factor, cost-effective, easy-to-manufacture near-eye head-mounted display (HMD) for virtual reality applications. Our approach adopts an aperture mask containing an array of pinholes and a screen as a source of imagery. We demonstrate proof-of-concept HMD prototypes with a binocular field of view (FOV) of 70\&\#xB0;\&\#xD7;45\&\#xB0;, or total diagonal FOV of 83\&\#xB0;. This FOV should increase with increasing display panel size. The optical angular resolution supported in our prototype can go down to 1.4\&\#x2013;2.1 arcmin by adopting a display with 20\&\#x2013;30\&\#xA0;\&\#x3BC;m pixel pitch.},
