Sony is set to show off its prototype AR head-mounted display at TGS!
Sony is set to reveal a new display for gaming at TGS! Do you remember the Virtual Reality craze back in the early 90s? Back when people wore headsets to interact with computers and whatnot? Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.
In this video (via NeoGAF), we get to see the HMZ Prototype AR HMD being shown off in the trailer -- though, there's no footage of the thing actually being used. In the video's YouTube description, the following can be read (Google-translated) and it mentions the upcoming Tokyo Game Show, which gives the impression this thing will be shown off at the event.
