Sony HMZ-T1 Personal 3-D Viewer

Sony HMZ-T1Sony brings back the days of virtual reality using a head-mounted display with the HMZ-T1 that uses two OLED screens to produce a 720p 3-D picture.

In the HMZ-T1, two 0.7-inch OLED displays show twin 1280-by-720 images, producing a high definition 3-D picture. This simulates a 150-inch 3-D HDTV seen from 12 feet away, an experience only reproduced in a movie theatre or using a projection system that costs several thousands of dollars.

Sony's HMZ-T1 will include a 5.1-channel surround sound through the built-in headphones, with four different sound modes for watching movies, playing video games and enjoying other movies and music.

The device will be available only in Japan starting in November. No news yet about an international release.

Brady Civil War stereoview.

An 1865 Matthew Brady Civil War stereoview of dead southern soliders in a trench at Ft. Mahone sold for $330 with 15 bids. From the series of War Views the card features a disconcerting image of dead Confederate soldiers in a trench at Fort Mahone referred to by the soldiers as "Fort Damnation" at Petersburg. The view is titled on the label at the back "No. 3182. Southern Soldiers killed in the Trenches of Ft. Mahone, called by the Soldiers Ft. Damnation. The view shows the construction of the bombproofs and covered passages which branch off in every direction." This view was taken the morning after the storming of Petersburg, Va., April 2d, 1865. The stereoview is from “The War For the Union” Series taken by Brady photographers. The stereoview offered here, was printed from Brady’s original negatives and published by E. & H. T. Anthony.

The trench is littered with blankets, hats, shoes and other equipment and to the left the entrance to one of the many bombproofs that made up Fort Mahone can be seen. The view is mounted on a rounded corner, flat orange card mount with affixed Anthony label on the back which includes the title of the view and the publisher's slug. The mount measures approximately 7" x 3 1/2".

Johnstown flood stereoview.

A boxed set of stereoviews of the Johnston flood sold for $305.99 with 10 bids. The boxed set of an edition of 25 stereoviews showing the vast devastation of the May 31, 1889 Johnstown Flood was photographed and assembled by R. K. Bonine, Tyrone, Pennsylvania, which is located 30 miles from Johnstown. The views are in excellent condition and the box is solid and sturdy. There are two views that have a different backing than the other 23, but the set is consecutive and complete. These two views are of the same condition and patina as the others. The seller surmised it is in the assembling of the printed photographs that these two numbers were grouped as such.
