For starters, since when did Spider-Man have a cloak?

I wonder what the final specs on these are? I know at CES there was a prototype from Sony that supposedly had a 1280x720 resolution. I don't know what kind of resolution you would need at that close a distance, but it seems a little low, but you have to start somewhere. If this sells even half way decent then hopefully it'll spur more activity in this category.

Price seems about what I would expect for a first go from Sony: 60,000ish Yen which is what? almost $800 USD?

    Spider-Man leaps from the top of a building and swings out towards you, cloak fluttering so close you can almost touch it -- at work, on a train, in a car, or wherever you are.

    Seriously though, $800 USD doesn't seem too bad given that the 3D screens I've looked at generally go for around that price. I figure that once the prices on those start falling, the same will happen with this.

    You may not find all that you're after. In the end I hope it doesn't matter.

    It seems like you should just have the Tron soundtrack playing as you walk around wearing that thing.
