Sony has announced a breakthrough development in 3D TV technology with the Sony Wurlitzer ED Stereosonic H-MSSG Mk1.
The ‘SWEDSH-MSSG Mk1’ is the ultimate in boys’ toys – comprising a 2.5metre plasma screen, a full size Wurlitzer organ with pneumatic lift and a real-life naked female organist developed using the latest in Scandinavian technology. The latter is able to project herself into a realistic three-dimensional field, straight on to the viewer’s lap or to serve ice-cream during TV commercials.
Previously viewers needed to wear eyeglasses to filter the separate offset images to each eye but Sony has developed the Wurlitzer so that viewers can interact without them.
A Sony spokesman said, “In the past there were several techniques to produce and display 3D moving images with the basic requirement to display offset images that are filtered separately to the left and right eye. The beauty of the organist feature is that all you literally need is the naked eye and a comfortable couch to enjoy the true benefits of 3D entertainment.”
Sound quality will also be enhanced with the Wurlitzer’s electro-pneumatic action (EPA), a vibrating reed-pipe and strong leather lipped 8′ flute pipe with a 10 year guarantee. The organ is designed to rise up at the touch of a button. “It's a sensitive device and the wrap around sound system is also designed to get you deep into the action. The vibrato and EPA technology will have you absolutely rocking in your seat.”
Viewers will now be able to get stuck right into the picture for the ultimate in 3D home entertainment. Sony is also developing an optional range of other hand held devices to heighten the experience further. An all-in-one remote also operates an optional lager dispenser, a fruit flavoured condoms machine and a handy-wipe tissue vendor.
The Sony Wurlitzer was tested amongst male viewers between the ages of 18 and 65 before the corporation were confident that it would have a place in the market. George Hardcastle age 52, tested the device in his home for three months, “It’s been an incredible ride. I really liked the naked organist feature which ensures that you can enjoy a selection of innovative 3D games, as well as some hot movies, sport action and TV in full HD detail. The only difficulty is that you have to keep the rest of the family out of the room to really appreciate the 3D action.”
At a cost of £2500 the Sony Wurlitzer 3D TV really looks set to make a few holes in viewer’s pockets.
