Sony shows an OLED based 3D 720p Head-Mounted-Display

Update: It seems that the OLED microdisplays are made by Sony themselves and not by eMagin...

Sony is showing a new 3D Head-Mounted-Display (visor) prototype - that uses two 720p (1280×720) OLED microdisplays. Other features includes 5.1 surround audio and a blue LED strip on the front.

This is just a prototype, but it's good to see Sony using OLEDs there (the OLED microdisplays are made by Sony).

could they have been emagins provided through an nda?

All I know is that Sony says these are "Sony Made OLEDs". Maybe they are using eMagin's IP or technology, anything is possible of course.

Please get your terms right ... it is head mounted isn't it?

(You will get many hits of car industry people looking for an OLED HUD.)

Yes, you're right of course: It's not a HUD... I fixed the story. Thanks!
