Palmer Luckey is the guy behind the Oculus Rift head mounted display which recently reeled in $2.4 million in a Kickstarter. He's no one-shot wonder though -- prior to the Rift Kickstarter he's worked on a number of other hand-build head mounted displays. Among them are an impressive 120 degree prototype and a 270 degree prototype!

The 90 degree FoV of the Rift is high than most everything else on the consumer market, but there's a chance that it the consumer version of the Rift will be even great than 90 FoV -- I hope so!
