Sony 3D Headset Coming To Japan This November

Sony 3D Headset Coming To Japan This November

August 31, 2011 | By Mike Rose

Sony has announced that it will launch a head-mounted visor later this year in Japan, which will be capable of HD and 3D visuals through a pair of OLED screens.

The 'HMZ-T1' device will feature two 720p displays in the headset, with both 2D and 3D high-definition visuals aavailable, and 5.1 surround sound.

The headset will also be able to output its video and audio signals to a television via HDMI output, allowing users to view the headset content on another display.

The available view given by the two OLED displays will cover a 45 degree area, and is designed to block out the surrounding areas and keep the viewer fully immersed.

Sony says that the headset will be compatible with the PlayStation 3, allowing users to connect it up with their console and view games through the visor.

The headset will be released on November 11, and will cost around 60,000 ($783).
