Carl Zeiss' OLED HMD is finally shipping after 4 years in development

Carl Zeiss has been showing their Cinemizer OLED head-mounted-display product for ages (since 2008 in fact), and finally they started shipping: $749 in the US and £577.90 in the UK. This is the 850x500 model (not the 720p version shown in 2010) that has HDMI (v1.4), Apple (iPhone 3/4 and iPod touch) connectors and A/V inputs.

$749 is quite expensive, considering that Sony's HMZ-T1 HMD costs only $50 more, and offer a much higher resolution at 1280x720.

Could have been interesting, but not having 720p like the Sony, it's an "also ran" IMHO.


Now if the future Oculus Rift V2 would be equiped with a 1920x1080 (or 1200?) OLED screen!? Droolworthy. :)
