Sony put up a tent-full of showcase to the media and visitors last night, just before the Euphoria Concert with Mike Posner and Train. One of the most interesting device they had in one of the booths was the Sony 3D HMD (Head Mounted Display).
The head-mounted display works pretty well and produces really good 3D images. What’s surprising is that the movies look like you’re watching them on a movie theater.
The gear hooks up to an external player like a Bluray player or a Sony Playstation. You can watch movies in traditional 2D or in 3D. It works bth for movies and gaming (the gaming part is more interesting).
We tried it and the gear is actually comfortable as long as you sit down on a comfortable, leaned-back position. They were asking us feedback about the whole experience and of course, the expected price (@artsamaniego ordered one from the US for $799).
A Sony SG rep was telling e they will be making cheaper models — one for 3D movies and one for 3D gaming.
