Hands-on: Sony HMZ-T3W Personal 3D viewer preview
What is the Sony HMZ-T3W Personal 3D viewer?
The first version offered a 150-inch screen and a 5.1 surround sound, then upgraded to the 750-inch display for the T2. Both crucially needed to be plugged into a power supply so in its 3rd iteration you get a wireless cinematic experience.

There’s a battery pack to slip into your pocket with HDMI In MHL and Wireless HD support to connect to a smartphone or tablet. It’s still a little on the big side, but to be honest we’d imagine most people would use this on the sofa than taking it out in public.
Beneath the visor, you’ll find volume and menu buttons plus sliders for each lens to adjust focus of each screen to give to get a comfortable and les disorientating view.
It’s definitely lighter than the two previous generations, but it still feels cumbersome to wear and some might still find it heavy to wear for long periods of time.

The battery pack manages to deliver 3 hours of life and seven hours via a HDMI connection. When you run out of juice, Sony claims it takes 2.5 hours to get back up to 80% of charge and 4.5 hours to get back to full capacity.
