The article was on N4G before, but the device was white.

IS this the same thing?

hopefully it'll be equipped with some sort of head movement tracking, would be neat.

Nice the eye boiler 5,000 , jokes aside will be good to see how the tech develops thought we would have seen it a long time ago aka the lawnmowerman days lol.
