Sony HMZ-T3W head-mounted display upgraded with wireless video

Sony has updated its head mounted display with wireless video capabilities, putting the equivalent of a 750in cinema screen right on your face

Sony has introduced its third generation head mounted display, the HMZ-T3W, which adds wireless streaming capabilities to the 3D-ready video helmet.

This major upgrade to the HMZ-T1 and HMZ-T2 supports the WirelessHD standard for practically zero lag wireless video, making it an ideal virtual reality gaming headset as well as for an immersive movie experience.

Twin 1,280×720 OLED panels produce 3D images at 24p, which give the impression of watching a 750in screen from 20m away. The visor-like design means you can look down easily if you want to play games, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to see a keyboard and mouse or game controller.

7.1 channel surround sound is delivered through the bundled 16mm driver in-ear headphones, or you can attach your own superior in-ears if you prefer.

Three HDMI inputs let you connect multiple wired devices, and MHL support lets you use your smartphone for big screen viewing. The bundled battery unit lets you watch up to three hours of wireless video, or seven hours when connected over HDMI.

If you like the idea of strapping a fully immersive cinema to your face, the HMZ-T3W will be available to buy directly from from November. However, be prepared to part with a whopping £1,300 for the privilege.
