Sony has released a new trailer ahead of the upcoming Tokyo Games Show showing off a slick, new head-mounted augmented reality display unit. The device seems to be a new version of Sony’s $500 HMZ 3D headset, which was released last year. What’s different in the new version, however, seems to be an in-built front-facing camera. It’s expected that the device will also act as a virtual reality headset. We expect the camera can be used to capture footage that the device can use to overlay AR images. The mounted camera may let the wearer see his surroundings in augmented reality, much like Google’s Project Glass. The video, which is in Japanese, appears to state that the device is called the PROTOTYPE-SR and that the device may well be introduced at the Tokyo Games Show.Click here for full story
