Hands On With Sony's HMZ-T1 Personal 3D Viewer @ TweakTown
Last fortnight, I was a guest at the Sony Showcase Building in Ginza, Tokyo, to take a look at one of the more interesting and unique new gadgets from the electronics giant in some years. The HMZ-T1, otherwise known by the somewhat more interesting moniker 'Personal 3D Viewer', looks like an accessory of Professor X, but the headset which beams 3D images directly to the retina will soon be available to the Japanese market. For a brief few minutes I was given a hands on demonstration with a prototype device and I'd like to tell you all about it.
First up, the HMZ-T1 is a big device and rather heavy. The set is tethered to a HDMI breakout box, which in turn is connected to the video source (in this instance, a PlayStation 3) and then to the power supply. This is not a device that's intended to let the viewer be mobile, not least you won't be able to see where you are going (unless you have Jedi reflexes), so you'll have to do your best to get comfortable in your best lounge chair before you strap yourself in.
