SONY: the future of virtual worlds

SONY, the future of virtual worlds

Sony may move into the territory market dominated by the Oculus Rift and other virtual-reality headsets with an upgrade to its head-mounted display. With a prototype head tracker attached, the visor-like entertainment device becomes an immersive game environment.

The company’s HMZ-T3W headgear has been around since September of last year, although it was designed to be primarily a video device. The idea is you slip on the display, sit back and press play. The headset will create a virtual 750-inch screen in front of your eyes, complete with surround sound, giving you a cinematic experience wherever you are.

A head tracker, which Sony showed a prototype of at CES 2014, takes the experience to the next level. With the tracker, which is located right behind your head, the virtual environment it creates can respond to your head movement — perfect for games or even interactive videos.

Sony has no info on if or when its head-tracking version of the headset will become available, but you can buy the regular HMZ-T3W today for $998.
