Sony to launch VR headset in 2016

Electronics giant Sony intends to unleash its virtual-reality headset next year.

The company said its Project Morpheus VR system will make its debut in early 2016.

The announcement was made at a news conference held during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Sony originally unveiled a prototype of the headset nicknamed Project Morpheus at last year's conference.

The headset works in tandem with Sony's PlayStation 4 console and camera by covering users' eyes and simulating virtual worlds on-screen.

The company showed off an updated prototype of the headset on Tuesday. It features 5.7in OLED screens that display a 100-degree field of view and nine LED lights used to track movement.

Sony claimed the headset can render games at 120 frames per second.

No price for the headset has been announced.
