Is Sony back? Struggling giant unveils virtual reality headset

Sony (SNE) has unveiled a prototype virtual reality headset for the Playstation 4 that would immerse players in the games they are playing.

The device, known as "Project Morpheus," would project an image to the user that would shift by tracking the movement of his or her head. It would also contain stereoscopic sound.

Sony plans to make the headset available to developers soon, but it otherwise didn't provide a release data nor price details.

The PlayStation has been a winner for Sony, selling over 6M units so far, but other divisions have been struggling. Could the headset help restore the company to its former glory?
