Toshiba Shocker: That Crazy Game Helmet Is For Reals

A while back, the above photo did the internet rounds. No way this product could really exist. Even by Japan standards, this is just too bizarre. But wait, it is real. Toshiba R&D is indeed working on this "Wearable Home Theater." There's even a clip from TV Tokyo to prove it! While this Apollo astronaut helmet weighs in at 2.7 kilograms, but the Toshiba rep says the contraption was designed to be worn comfortably. It gives players a full 360 experience and head movement correspond with screen movements.

The story is too old to be commented.

I know it looks funny but just imagine how this helmet will immerse you in a true virtual world! This is what I want to use for 1st person games and can't wait to try it out!

Had to vote "cool" on that :D

Now think of all the ladies that would be impressed once you showed up with that...

1.) It looks like a 19" T.V. got stuck on her head. :|

2.) Anyone else see ANOTHER possible partnership brewing between Toshiba and MS? ;)
