We propose a novel conceptual design for a Head-Mounted Projection Display (HMPD) with Eye-Tracking (ET) capabilities. We present a fully integrated system that is robust, easy to calibrate, inexpensive, and lightweight. The HMD-ET integration is performed from a low-level optical configuration in order to achieve a compact, comfortable, easy-to-use system. The idea behind the full integration consists of sharing the optical path between the HMD and the Eye-Tracker. Along with lens design and optimization, system level issues such as eye illumination options, hardware alternatives are discussed.
