Headplay, Inc. just announced the unveiling of the Headplay Personal Cinema System’s final production-ready design at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show.
The Headplay Personal Cinema System is a portable, visual headset and media center that delivers a big-screen viewing experience for gaming, movie watching and Internet use.
Connecting directly to game consoles, DVD players, iPods, PCs and cell phones, the Personal Cinema System is also capable of reading stored media using compact flash or USB. Use of SD, XD, Memory Stick or Smart Media is also expected to be available at launch. The unit boasts universal compatibility with hardware platforms worldwide. In addition, the Personal Cinema System displays, with content availability, true stereoscopic 3-D.
The Personal Cinema System is comprised of three major components. The Viewer headset displays a virtual 52-inch screen. The Liberator is the brain and heart of the system, with a Compact Flash slot and two USB ports. Finally, the Navigator remote controls the whole shebang, and serves as the connection point for the system’s noise-suppression ear-buds or listening device of your choice.
Expect additional accessories to be available around launch time.
