The HMZ Personal 3D Viewer, ‘not much wider than a pair of sunglasses’ allows TV watching, Blueray vids and gaming, all to yourself on two 0.7″ OLED displays, without pesky interruptions from outside. 

But fear not, with 1280×720 res dual screens – one for each eye – you won’t be squinting for dear life – watching is reportedly like looking at a ginormous 750″ display from 20 meters afar. 
The TV head wear weighs 420g and sits comfortably, handy for commuters or viewers who just want a bit of private telly time, say Sony. 
“The hardest part for us was to make it as small-sized as possible, while maintaining high definition, but we succeeded,” said Shigeru Kato, a Sony vice president. 
“Before, watching a movie on a big screen was a pastime for the whole family, but now there is a growing demand from people who want to enjoy videos on large-sized screens alone.” 
The device was first debuted at CES in January.

According to Reuters, the mini 3D experience goes on sale in Japan on November 11, but at 60,000 yen or AU$740 our currency, this ‘personal TV’ might be a bit of a stretch.

No word yet whether it will head Down Under. .
