I'm stuck in the office eating Sour Squirms while Nick from Gizmodo and Seamus are lording it up in Vegas for CES. As far as I can tell, only one good thing has come from this situation - this new Sony gadget that looks like a Virtual Boy. I want it.
Sadly it doesn't play games, but it does play 3D movies using two awesome OLED screens. Nick Broughall from Gizmodo got the chance to check it out, and had this to say...
Watching content on through the device is fantastic. It literally looks like you’re at the back of a seatless movie theatre with a big screen in front of you. That perceived depth between you and the screen means that there’s plenty of room for virtual 3D images to pop out at you from the screen.
There are only two pieces of bad news - firstl off, the gadget is called 'Headman' and, secondly, the chances of it receiving a release here is slim.
Chances are we’ll never actually see this as a proper consumer product. Which makes sense, because chances are most people wouldn’t want to wear a bulky face visor, regardless of the cool Tron aesthetics. And it being a Sony product, it probably wouldn’t be cheap enough for most people to buy one.
Anyway - head over to Giz and check out the full report.
