“Magic Helmet” for F-35 ready for delivery | Ars Technica.

The most expensive and complicated piece of headgear ever constructed, the F-35 Gen III Helmet Mounted Display System (HMDS) was just released.

The HMDS goes way beyond previous augmented reality. The helmet is equipped with night vision capabilities via an infrared sensor that projects imagery inside the facemask.

The helmet runs for about $600,000.
