VR(Virtual Reality) AR (Augmented Reality) and a mixture of technologies are going to hit the consumer market soon with Facebook's Oculus Rift, Microsoft's Hololens and Google's Magic Leap.
The US Navy has released Futuristic Diver Augmented Vision Display (DAVD) Technology that provides navy divers real-time operational data enables them to be more effective and safe in their missions, providing expanded situational awareness and increased accuracy in navigating to a target such as a ship, downed aircraft or other objects of interest. Instead of having to rely on pre-dive briefings alone to determine what they are looking for, how specific items should appear and where they may be located, the DAVD system places the information right before divers' eyes with a look and feel comparable to a point-of-view video game display.
See this US Navy page for more information on this technology.
