In the past, 3D entertainment was almost exclusively the sole possession of the Motion Picture Industry. With the advent of 3D televisions, this form of entertainment was now made available to the consumer. Next month, Sony will take that to the next level with the release of its Personal 3D Viewer. This lightweight headset is purported to provide a true 3D experience via direct wired link to a 3D source. Source material has always been a pitfall of 3D technology and with a little over 80 movies, a few video games, and next to no broadcasts it still is. That being said Sony is betting on the refined technologies built into the system to push sales of the new device. The two 0.7inch screens are composed of organic light emitting diodes (LED) that allow each eye to see a different image. These images are combined in the brain to give them the illusion of depth.
This 3D will not come cheaply as the Personal 3D Viewer will carry a price tag of $799.
