    Default Sony to release 3D head set


    http://www.engadget.com/2011/08/31/s...s-in-japan-no/

    A wearable virtual reality style 3D visor with built in 5.1 surround. $800 (US) in Japan but will probably be cheaper here. Only 720 though, and no info on frame rate.

    I have to say between this and the VIP 3D converter announced earlier I'm happier now with in-home 3d. They are steps in the right direction. I'm glad we are starting to see more alternatives to simply being forced to buy a very expensive new tv.

    Will have to be at least 60 frames per second per eye so you don't get flicker. Not an issue using OLED displays.

    Why should we feel forced to buy anything? I think nowadays people are at the lowest point of being "forced" to buy things. They just have much more money to waste compared to a century ago for example.

    I really want this. Finally, actual 3D, and on OLED screens at that? It would be nice if they eventually released a 1080p version though - of course, the fact that they were able to fit that many pixels onto 0.7" screens is astounding. Maybe the HMZ-T2 could up the screen size to 1"?
    PS3 60GB
    Finally got my Samsung LN32A550P1F.
    Analog 5.1 Logitech system (Yes, I'm still poor).
    27 Blu-rays - Favourites include Firefly, Serenity and The Dark Knight.

    I would like to get one of these also but I think I will be waiting till the price comes down to closer to $400 to $500 range.

    According to one of our members who is at CEDIA right now, there is room for glasses to be worn.

    There is a box that has an HDMI input on it. The BD player attaches to it while the headgear attaches to the box.

    AFAIK, you have much less of a chance of artifacts when down converting then you do upconverting simply because all you are doing is throwing away unneeded data. As opposed to creating data that doesn't exist.
