More good news about 3D http://bit.ly/dfZD8Z Don’t drink and watch. (Kind of makes it impossible to watch football in 3D!)
â€œPregnant women, the elderly, sufferers of serious medical conditions, those who are sleep deprived or under the influence of alcohol should avoid utilising the unitâ€™s 3D functionality.â€
Since that describes me, about 80% of the time (sleep deprived mostly) I wonder when I could watch 3D TV if I wanted to? Also difficult to wear the 3D glasses and multitask on my laptop as I do more than half the time I watch TV.
Add to this new data point the fact that some 30% of the population cannot see 3D (stereo blindness) or find that it gives them headaches or worse, and you have to wonder why it’s so prevalent this NAB. During the week I also saw a post, but didn’t bookmark it, that indicated it wasn’t a great idea to drive after watching a 3D movie in a theater – something to do with changed depth perception after the 3D experience.
I remain 3D skeptical. I might be wrong.
