Sony unveils a 3D TV you wear on your head (HMD – Head Mounted Display)
The headset launches first in London’s Harrods, but it will roll out to Sony Stores across the country this year.
The point? The screen technology inside – OLED – is widely used in phones, but despite Sony championing the ultra-fast-moving TV technology, it’s still far too pricey for large sets at a normal price.
Sony’s demo versions of 3D sets have drawn awed stares at trade shows courtesy of their crisp blacks and fast screen updates, but they have never gone on widespread sale.
