Early Images of Project Morpheus Surface

Yesterday Sony lifted the lid on its Project Morpheus virtual reality (VR) prototype for use with that PlayStation 4. The project had previously been in the works for over 3 years and now some earlier versions of the prototype have surfaced online to prove as much. The images, taken from Sony’s reveal event at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) yesterday, show three of the company’s PlayStation Move motion controllers stuck to the sides of the device. They can be seen below.

As Engadget reports, another picture showed the company’s Shuhei Yoshida testing out the device in both 2010 and 2011. The headset had already been refined to include just one Move controller in the 2010 picture.

The Project Morpheus that was now know is designed to take weight off of the user’s nose and cheek for comfortable usage. That said, the design is apparently still incomplete, so expect further refinements in the coming months as the device moves towards a consumer release. VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of Project Morpheus and report back with all the latest.
