Sony has revealed a 3D entertainment system that allows you to watch movies, play games, and listen to music — and it all fits on your face.
The system, named the HMZ Personal 3D Viewer (HMZ is meant to stand for Head Mounted Display, although I missed the part where “Display” begins with the letter “Z”), is targeted at those who want a solitary entertainment experience.
The unit hooks up to consoles and Blu-Ray players and fits snugly like a pair of giant goggles on the user’s face. Aside from providing the user with 3D imagery, it also plays sound.
The HMZ is priced at 60,000 yen ($AU732) and will be available in Japan from November 11. There are no launch dates for Europe, the US or Australia yet, although reports have hinted at a Christmas launch.
Do you think the HMZ will take off? Would you consider buying one? Let us know what you think!
