The optivisor was a device installed in the rim of BraveStarr's hat. It could lower across his eyes to offer the viewer an expanded view.
The optivisor served several purposes, including identifying beings, following a trail and measuring the thickness of cave walls. Sometimes the information would be related by a computer voice rather than appearing as part of the screen.
