Looking suspiciously like something out of Tron, the new Sony 3D OLED Glasses have me wondering if some accident in the near future doesn’t change the course of humanity, making everything look like Tron. Forever.
Good, now that’s off my chest, I can tell you the grey, black and very light blue color scheme on Sony’s head mounted OLED glasses isn’t very fortunate. In fact, it looks like R2D2 and a 12 year old got together and designed these.
There is, however, much reason for joy and celebration on the technical side. With two OLED screens and a total resolution of 1280×720, there’s room for both HD and 3D with these babies, and they also come with simulated 5.1 surround sound and connection to most gaming and media devices through HDMI.
Just a prototype for now, Sony promised they’ll have a talk with R2D2 and the 12 year old, motivating them to double their design efforts in a quest for market release by the end of 2011.
