Nowadays, Mixed and Virtual Reality devices suffer froma field of view that is too small compared to human visual perception. Although a larger field of view is useful (e.g., conveying peripheral information or improving situation awareness), technical limitations prevent the extension of the field-of-view. A way to overcome these limitations is to extend the field-of-view with peripheral light displays. How- ever, there are no tools to support the design of peripheral light displays for Mixed or Virtual Reality devices. There- fore, we present our prototyping tool PeriMR that allows researchers to develop new peripheral head-mounted light displays for Mixed and Virtual Reality.
