eMagin Corporation is showing off enhancements for its Z800 3DVisor at the E3 Expo in Los Angeles. The 3DVisor delivers the virtual-image equivalent of a 105-inch screen viewed from a distance of 12 feet. Its 360-degree viewing area allows gamers to look around and move in the virtual world much like they do in the real world. The visor also contains an audio system with stereo earbuds and a noise-canceling microphone. The price of the 3DVisor has been dropped by $350 and is now available for $549.
