Sony may be set to dip their toes in the wearable computing/augmented reality arena if a new video on their Japanese Youtube account is anything to go by.
UPDATE: Sony has confirmed that the HMZ Personal 3D Viewer will indeed make its debut at TGS, while a modified camera and gyroscope-equipped Prototype - the 'SR' - will also make an appearance. More details on the new product page.
Spotted on NeoGAF, this new video seemingly outs a prototype augmented reality headset destined for a TGS 2012 reveal. According to the Google-Translated accompanying text, it's almost certainly in the testing stages, but promises "immersive pleasure" and "the possibility of new entertainment."
