HMZ-T1: Sony unveils world's first 3D head-mounted display that is as immersive as 'sitting in a cinema' | Mail Online

Price = 60000 Japanese yen = 780 US dollars

It is equipped with two 0.7in high definition organic light emitting diode (OLED) panels and 5.1 channel dynamic audio headphone.

The gadget enables the wearer to experience cinema-like viewing, equivalent to watching a 750-inch screen from 20 metres away,

There is no mention of the screen's resolutions or what interfaces and formats it will accept.

From Slashdot: Sony To Sell 3D Head-Mounted Display "Sony says it will start selling a head mounted display that provides a 3D theater for music videos, movies and games, targeting people who prefer solitary entertainment rather than sitting in front of a TV with family or friends. Sony Corp said on Wednesday that the 60,000 yen ($A730) 'HMZ personal 3D viewer' is set to go on sale on November 11 in Japan, and is planned for the US and Europe, perhaps in time for Christmas, although dates have not yet been set. HMZ uses Sony's own OLED screen"
