Morpheus will also use 3-D audio technology developed by Sony. Sounds will come from all directions, including stereoscopic sounds heard from below and above the players, such as footsteps climbing up from below them, or engine noises of helicopters flying overhead.
Just like the real-time camera views, sounds that players hear will also change in real-time depending on their head orientation.
This headset may open doors beyond the game world. "As with any virtual reality headset, the applications go far beyond gaming," said Mike Prospero, reviews editor of Laptop Mag. He adds that Morpheus can potentially be used for other graphics-heavy applications. "Its boundaries are virtually limitless," he said.
Prospero says Sony's Morpheus will put the pressure on to other companies, such as Microsoft, to get something virtual out as well.
