The HMZ-T3W is completely wireless, with a built-in battery. This little black box converts the images coming out of your PC, game console, or mobile device and beams them to two tiny OLED displays in front of your eyes.

The thing sticking out the top is a pad so your head doesn't get sore wearing the headset for long periods, such as during a whole movie.
