         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 5.7-inch OLED screens that display a 100-degree field of view and nine LED lights used to track movement. Sony says the headset can render games at 120 frames per second.

         No price was announced.
