For the last few days, Sony have been offering a dazzling look into future at the IFA expo in Berlin. They’ve been showing off a plethora of brain-boggling innovation, with our eyes drawn in particular to technology delivering on the promise of astounding visuals … everything from new 4K products to Sony’s updated personal 3D viewer.

Touted as “a complete home cinema to go”, this headset delivers immersive thrills whether you’re at home or out and about. Building on the benefits of previous incarnations, this one is wireless and can be run on a battery. That means you can happily divorce yourself from reality any time you want.

Two OLED screens display Full High Definition or 3D images right in front of your adoring little peepers, delivering content you can source wirelessly from compatible portable devices. Meanwhile – in case you weren’t sufficiently dazzled – 7.1 Surround Sound puts you in the middle of the action.

Sony have also been working on making the headset more ergonomical as well – and strapping on the lightweight device is like sitting down comfortably in the middle of your own huge private cinema (which, let’s emphasise, you can take anywhere).

Sony rules 4K, okay?

On the subject of visual thrills, Sony have notably embraced the pioneering spirit when it comes to 4K, as we’ve mentioned previously. Not only is a suite of very impressive Sony 4K TVs currently being given the royal treatment, efforts have also been made to make Ultra HD material more accessible with the introduction of a 4K online service.

We also note that Sony has made working with the new resolution a reality for the home movie enthusiast … with the release of 4K home camcorders – another important step towards mass-acceptance of the Ultra HD format. Shooting in 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution, this groundbreaking device uses an Exmor R™ CMOS sensor and high-quality “G Lens” to deliver the goods.
