Sony's Personal 3D Viewer Coming To Australia

The future is here, and it looks pricey and kind of dorky.

Back in November of 2011, our sister site Gizmodo reviewed the Sony Personal 3D viewer, also known as the HMZT1. The review was favourable! The head set provided the reviewer with an immersive 3D experience with clear images, surround sound, and a red mark on his forehead after he removed the device from his head.

The Personal 3D Viewer is now coming to Australia. On January 27, 100 units will be made available for pre-order. Normal sales commence in late March. You can own one for the price of $AU899.

So... will you be getting one? What do you think of the product and the price? Let us know!

    This tech interests me, but for the price I would rather a tv that doesn't strap to my head and leave marks. Maybe once the price drops?

    Yes I will be getting one
    Wife wants a new TV as I currently have a display panel only.
    Tricky to swap sound & inputs so she gives up.
    I will connect this to the PS3 & leave the panal set up for TV only
    This is $899 vs. $2500 for a decent 55' 3D LED LCD TV

      I got a 46" Bravia LED LCD for under $800. I think someone is taking you for a ride with the $2500.

        Maybe the $2500 includes the price of a Monster HDMI cable.

          Eh, once they hit the 50" mark the price jumps quite a bit...

          Add in backlit LED rather than edgelit and various other odds & ends...

            Yeah, not that much unless your shopping at HN. Look online.

          Or you could just get 60" Panasonic Neo Plasma with all the useless 3D/smart TV features and a better picture than any LED/LCD (in my biased opinion!) for under $2000!

        I have a gap of exactly 1334mm, a 55' is the biggest I can go

    Where to pre-order?!? wanted it! ###

    The Virtual Boy is born again!

      Haha. was just thinking that. i've got a virtual boy and it has the same features/price tag.

        The real question is which of the two is more uncomfortable to use :P

        Also, what do you think of it? I absolutely love mine, wish the few games I'm missing for it weren't such a pain to find though.

    Don't know why it keeps happening???

    $900 is too much for me, but i wouldnt mind at least giving it a try, hopefully they will have instore demos.

    I also assume, the first batch of pre-orders will be on the Sony site on Friday?

    But seriously, I will be saving up to buy one.

    I wouldn't mind it, surely it can't be too good for the eyes though?

    I have one.

    Its good for 3d. But the head mounted display is heavy. your nose will hurt.

    Some people add a strap over the top to help with this. Ghetto fixes ftw

    How do you preorder???

    Oh boy the Sony Virtual Station!
