In this paper we present wireless technologies that can be used to transmit uncompressed stereoscopic video signals to wireless displays in real time. We introduce two output devices, a stereoscopic head mounted display (HMD) and a TFT display module. Both of them have been adapted to act as receivers in order to display wirelessly streamed Mixed Reality (MR) content. By way of example two educational MR applications are presented which were used for demonstration and testing purposes. A number of teaching scenarios are described where teachers and students greatly benefit from the use of wireless displays. We briefly summarize the results of our observations while developing and evaluating these displays.
