The Sony HMD (Head Mounted Display) “Personal 3D Viewer” or HMZ-T1, is the world’s first wearable 3D display. It’s a large piece of headgear featuring a set of headphones and two 0.7” HD OLED panels – one for the left eye, and one for the right eye.

The advantage of the OLED technology is that it has very fast (0.01 millisecond) response times, rendering smooth life-like video of the fast-moving imagery encountered in gaming and watching sport. The strengths of the unit are that with two separate screens, there’s a much better 3D experience because you have one screen for each eye, and with a 5.1 surround sound system built-in with Four different surround sound modes (Standard, Cinema, Game, and Music), you get a much better audio experience

The device connects to a processor unit via an HDMI cable. This processor unit is a must, so don’t count on the HMZ-T1 being mobile. The processor then connects to whatever device is playing the media content – your television, computer, game console, or whatever else has HDMI output. The device also goes to sleep automatically when you aren’t wearing it.

Sony HMZ-T1  Personal 3D Viewer will be available sometime in November with prices around $ 800
