Sony has given its HMZ-T1 personal display unit a US release date and price. It's set to completely change how 3D technology is used and was shown off last week.

In a press release Sony clarified that the device would be

on sale in the US November this year for "around" $799. The device garnered significant attention at this year's IFA conference, not least for its compatibility with Sony's flagship PlayStation 3 console.

Upon release, the visor is set to pack two 1280 x 720 OLED panels capable of 3D graphics, offering the equivalent viewing experience of a 750-inch screen watched from 20 metres away.

Additionally the space-tech-esque visor is set to include an HDMI input, allowing it to be used with Blu-Ray media players, PCs and - most importantly - games consoles.

The visor comes as a part of the company's ongoing bid to push 3D gaming. To date Sony has expanded the number of games using 3D to include numerous big-name games such as Killzone 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Resistance 3 and The Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection.

Sadly, in it press release Sony made no mention of a European release date or price for the visor.
