Sony through the years has been testing out new ways of watching your favorite movies, playing your games and doing that in a personal way. They came up with the Sony HMZ-T1 which is a personal 3d viewing unit. Even though the main technology that it is based on is a blast from the past (there were a lot of 3d helmet designs in the nineties and early 2k), and it gives out a feeling as you are a part of the Star Trek team and on board Enterprise, and all in all it has a really futuristic look.
The Personal 3D viewer is made out of a helmet frame that has a pair of multi-lens optics and the whole electronics needed to show 3D pictures directly to the viewer. There are 2 OLED screens that are 0.7 inch and give picture quality of 720p. Additionally it has adjustable headphones that give out a 5.1 surround sound that completes the whole isolation packet, and gives you the satisfaction of enjoying of a perfect 3D movie or a movie (all by yourself). All of this makes them quite heavy with a total weight of 350g, which is supported by the frame of the helmet and the additional padding.
Sony claims that with the Personal 3D viewer you have the feeling that you are watching a movie that is on a 750 inch big screen from a distance of 20 meters. The head set gives you the opportunity to choose between watching in 3D and 2D, and the screens are adjustable for people with problematic eye sight. The viewer is connected to a box set via a cable, and that is connected to any other game console, computer or a blue ray player via a HDMI cable.
The viewer itself is quite expensive with a price tag of an expensive phone, making it not very reachable for the masses. Even though it has some negatives, like the isolation of one person, and not having the full social experience of viewing movies with other people, we give it thumbs up, and hope for other good gadgets from Sony.
