The TELEMETRIC OBSERVATION VISOR is a technology extrapolated from the so-called TEACHER, a device created by the dying civilization of SIGMA DRACONIS VI.

Designed for use by humanoids primarily, the transparent aluminum "helmet" is shaped like a traditional fishbowl with several dozen metallic rods imbedded through much of the surface.

It fits over the head of the user, its telemetric nodes bypassing the normal connections the user has with the five senses and replacing them with data gleaned from a variety of robotic exo-probes. The net effect is, while wearing the TOV and the corresponding harness, the user feels as if s/he is "flying" in space without the cumbersome restrictions of a traditional EV suit.
