The Sony HMZ-T3W Head Mounted Display is the follow-up to the distinctive Sony HMZ-T2 Personal 3D Viewer and this time, it's wireless.
The 3D-ready personal viewer offers 7.1 virtual surround sound, which combines with the visuals from the two tiny OLED panels to provide an immersive viewing experience. The idea is that you can hook it up to your TV, games console, PC or mobile device. You can steam video wirelessly - using WirelessHD - which Sony says should provide you with practically no lag.
Sony HMZ-T3W: Features
Unlike the previous model, the HMZ-T3W visor can be powered wirelessly, whereas the T2 had to be plugged into the mains, making it rather cumbersome. This means that the T3W can be used on the go - we wouldn't suggest that you walk the streets wearing it, but you could, for example, use it on a plane.
Sony HMZ-T3W: Size and build
The T3W is slightly lighter than it's predecessor, while the metallic finish makes it look like it belongs on a Daft Punk album cover.
Sony HMZ-T3W: Picture quality
As with Sony's second-gen 3D visor, the T3W only offers 720p HD, rather than full HD, but does it matter? Like the previous model, we suspect that the headset may struggle with 2D content, as it's really designed to show off 3D - but that's something we'll look at more closely in our full review.
Sony HMZ-T3W: Verdict
As Sony's third-gen head-mounted viewer, the HMZ-T3W looks like the most convincing yet. The streamlined design and introduction of wireless streaming capability are compelling upgrades and we look forward to testing it out in full.
