The "Glasstron" is notable for meticulous yet organic design taking advantage of a magnesium alloy. The developers kept the number of parts to a minimum and the equipment worn free of any complex or confusing elements, aiming for a streamlined, simple appearance. The familiar format of glasses (easily folded into a compact, portable form) was chosen for this display. Careful design is evident in this unique monitor, even in the details. Although this model serves a niche market, it demonstrates commitment in putting the innovative Sony signature on all products.
