Sony’s madcap 3D headset prototype from CES 2011 is set to hit stores in a fianl retail build, and the HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer visor was on show at the IFA 2011 tech conference for all and sundry to try out.
The headset manages a pretty impressive 3D image by placing two 0.7 inch OLED panels in front of your eyes, giving the impression you’re watching a single 750-inch 3D screen. The headset also comes complete with pseudo-5.1 surround sound thanks to the multi-channel ear pieces that sit either side of your head.
Set first for a Japanese release before the year is out, as yet there is no UK release date set. It’ll set you back around £480 to import them from Japan however.
Check them out in the video above.
