Toshiba's gaming helmet

Upon first glance at this photo on Engadget, we thought it was the result of some horrible accident. Or maybe a Photoshop prank. Either way, it's worth the price of admission.

The U.K.'s Daily Mail reports that this new device from Toshiba "enables the wearer to experience a full 360-degree view on a 40-centimeter dome-shaped screen." It does not explain, however, how to keep your skull from imploding inside this frightening thing.
