Sony unveils second-generation head-mounted display, HMZ-T2 will arrive in Japan next month

Sony announces their HMZ-T2, the company's second-generation 'Personal 3D Viewer'

I still haven't had the pleasure of trying out Sony's head-mounted 3D visor, the HMZ-T1, but the Japanese company has just announced the second-gen followup, HMZ-T2. HMZ-T2 will feature most of the same specs as its predecessor, save for a few changes.

HMZ-T2 will include a lighter total weight, redesigned head strap for improved comfort - one of things complained about in the first-gen model, ear buds instead of headphones, plus 24p support as well as a "Clear" panel drive mode for fast-moving content such as games, and action movies.

 

The original HMZ-T1 cost $799 in the US, but the HMZ-T1 is launching in Japan with a price of 70,000 yen, or around US$894. It was unveiled at IFA in Berlin, and will be teased again at the Tokyo Game Show. I'm really keen to check it out, but the 720p feels really restrictive to me. It would be nice if they sported 120Hz displays inside - but I'm clearly dreaming here, aren't I?
