Can a VR style headset trick you brain. into thinking it's viewing an IMax sized screen?

I'm not even remotely interested in VR.

I am interested in creating, at home, the optical illusion of an exceptionally wide screen, without that sick feeling that sometimes accompanies things happening too close to your eyes.

Oh, and avoiding having to buy a huge TV screen

Got a big wall?

use a projector to get a big screen view :0)

I'd thought about that but the life span of lamps in such projectors is short, when compared to a TV, but mounting one on the Ceiling and putting a Screen, in place of the curtains, had occurred to me.

I use a 10" portable DVD player plugged into the mains with small external speakers for improved sound; with the screen about 2ft away from my eyes, it's just like watching a big screen TV.

HB; Doesn't really qualify on the "total immersion" stakes
