"Axonn saw the gate advancing rapidly, threatening to envelop him. He couldn't see anything inside it, only deep darkness. He knew Brutaka's power — the gate might lead to someplace else on Voya Nui or any other island, or even to a different dimension entirely."

The Kanohi Olmak was the Mask of Dimensional Gates.
The Order of Mata Nui gave one Olmak to Brutaka.[note 1] It was later damaged when Brutaka was exposed to Pit Mutagen, causing its portals to lead to unintended destinations. After Makuta Teridax took control of the Great Spirit Robot, Brutaka used his Olmak and appeared in the Core Processor beneath Metru Nui's Coliseum; Teridax proceeded to destroy the mask.
The second Kanohi Olmak had a variety of owners. Artakha arranged for a member of Jovan's Toa Team to wear the mask. After the team entered Karda Nui and the Kanohi Ignika took the life of one of Jovan's teammates to revive Mata Nui, the remainder of Jovan's team used the Olmak to escape Karda Nui's energy storms. Makuta Tridax hired the Dark Hunters to attack the team after the mission to acquire the mask, which resulted the Olmak-bearing Toa's death. The Order of Mata Nui sent Tobduk to secure the mask. It was used twice by Botar: once to imprison Toa Mangai Tuyet in a pocket dimension and once to capture a Tuyet from an alternate universe who would take the place of her imprisoned counterpart. Makuta Tridax eventually regained possession of the mask and used it to recruit an army of Shadow Takanuva. Vezon later looted the Olmak from the sub-basement of the Brotherhood of Makuta's Destral Fortress. When the half-Skakdi donned the mask and traveled through a portal, he stepped out only to face a wave of Energized Protodermis that caused his body to absorb the mask. Vezon then lost control over the mask and hopped between several dimensions. Eventually, however, the Skakdi returned to the prime dimension, and the cursed Great Being deactivated his Olmak.
Currently, no Kanohi Olmak exist in the main dimension except the one fused to Vezon.
In this alternate universe, Brutaka's Kanohi Olmak was held in the Coliseum's Hall of Masks after he was killed. The Tuyet of this universe fought with the prime universe's Takanuva over the mask, which the latter wanted to use to return home. During the battle, Takanuva escaped through one of the Olmak's portals; Tuyet followed but was killed when the gateway closed on her midsection. The mask was lost in interdimensional space.
The Kanohi Olmak allowed its user to transport him or herself and/or other targets to different locations or dimensions via dimensional portals. The user of an Olmak could only create one portal at a time. A Kanohi Olmak user could also form gateways that stayed open without his or her concentration if he or she so wished. If the mask was removed from its wearer while a portal was open, then that portal would slowly begin to close. Although achieving time travel with an Olmak was impossible, users could travel to alternate dimensions where time flowed at a different rate than at home. Users could also have used a Kanohi Olmak to travel beyond the Matoran Universe.
When Brutaka's Olmak was damaged by Pit Mutagen, it continued to open portals on demand. However, Brutaka had virtually no control over where these portals might lead. Vezon demonstrated even less control over the Olmak fused to his head; the Skakdi could not choose when the portals opened or where they led.
