As noted by Sony Japan on its official website that day, the Sony HMZ T1 is a head mounted display that provides a 3D personal theater of movies, music videos and games.

According to Sony, the world’s first 3D personal theater, which will be available in Japan this November 11, 2011, is being estimated to be worth 60,000 yen (around $800) but may be subject for change.

This futuristic device was noted to be movie theater-like virtual screen, or equivalent to a 750-inch screen, using a high definition OLED panel (1280 x 720) to deliver high quality and crosstalk-free 3D pictures.

HMZ-T1 is being described by Sony to have adopted the ‘Dual Panel 3D Method‘ which consists of separate panels for the left and right eye so it can display independent HD picture quality to each eye.

In addition, its optical lens was noted to have achieved a wide horizontal viewing angle of 45 degrees equivalent to a movie theater screen, which suppresses unwanted elements such as distortion.

Apparently, Sony also offers viewers to enjoy sound equivalent to a maximum 5.1ch multi-channel audio, which further enhances the spatial effects of 3D and feeling like actually being there.

As of this writing, this Sony 3D personal theater has no release date for US, Europe and other parts of the world.
