Sony HMZ-T1 Spectacular Head Mounted Home Theatre

[09/09/11] 

Sony has unveiled a wearable head display for watching movies, the HMZ-T1. They like to give you similar gadgets at the dentist when they’re drilling into your molars but this toy can’t be associated with the perils of dentistry. Forget watching films on your laptop, this is the way forward - even if it means you’ll become the world’s easiest target for pickpockets.

Priced at US$600, the HMZ-T1 displays games and films in 3D-enabled High Definition. The visuals are produced by a pair of 0.7-inch pair of OLED panels which make you feel like your watching a 750-inch 3D screen from 20 meters away. It must be particularly liberating when you’re on cramped train for instance - unless it's too realistic. Ducking and weaving would not go down well with your fellow passengers.

The audio performance is equally formidable, provided by built-in 5.1 surround sound speakers. Combined with the clarity of the visuals, the audio delivers a comprehensive sensory experience – the likes of which you only used to be able to enjoy at theme park simulators. Which begs the question - what can large simulators do today? They must be terrifying.

Thanks to the lack of space in Hong Kong they should sell very well here but we’d suggest not buying one for your kids. They’ll never talk to anyone ever again.

It's all in your mind.
