While I'm not here to bash 3D technology, new tech doesn't automatically mean it's good, useful or worth the money. Its current incarnation has at least one enormous downside in the form of eye strain - I don't know about you, but 3D is something I can only deal with in short bursts (15-30 mins) before it gets to be quite irritating. If the same type of tech used in the 3DS were to be employed for televisions, it'd suck balls because of the narrow viewing angle.Haha. I know the real reason you're bashing the technology. It's new.
I wonder if these people have a worthwhile reason for not wanting to wear the glasses (such as having to wear normal glasses or whatnot) - I can't help but think that some of the people in this category don't like the glasses because they look goofy or some shit like that (Heaven forbid that you look goofy in the comfort of your own home, or in the company of friends!)And 42 percent of people said the reason they wouldn't buy one is because they don't want to wear glasses
The world may not change, but your perception of it doesWalking with one eye closed doesn't make the world 2D anyway...
Don't most projection devices (can't think of a better way to describe it) have similar effects when you are tired/fatigued?Doesn't sounds so enjoyable. Right?
You miss the point. I am not afraid. I just don't like the current scope of "3D" vision. It's not true 3D and it's not truly necessary. Like someone said above, the images are all FLAT. they are just layered (and often times layered at arbitrary distances) flat images.It no longer really means anything. Every new technology is being called gimmick nowadays, it has lost its meaning. Touch screens were a gimmick, motion controls were a gimmick, 3D with glasses is a gimmick, 3D without glasses is a gimmick...
3D adds depth. When some stuff is further away from some stuff, it has depth. I have no idea what "depth" means to you if not this.
I never compared anything. I was just saying that you people are afraid of new things. That's just how it is.
I'm pretty sure it does, However, it doesn't make you screwed such as 3D does.Don't most projection devices (can't think of a better way to describe it) have similar effects when you are tired/fatigued?
And there is a hell of alot Moar! Not even 2d glasses wouldn't work.Samsung said:The “warning” advises parents to monitor their children as they watch 3-D programming and cautions that it could trigger seizure or stroke in those with a family history of those conditions.
Viewing in 3D mode may also cause motion sickness, perceptual after effects, disorientation, eye strain, and decreased postural stability. It is recommended that users take frequent breaks to lessen the likelihood of these effects. If you have any of the above symptoms, immediately discontinue use of this device and do not resume until the symptoms have subsided.
On the topic of seizures, the Epilepsy Society of the UK suggest that the 3D effect isn't likely to be the cause when it comes to inducing a seizureThe “warning” advises parents to monitor their children as they watch 3-D programming and cautions that it could trigger seizure or stroke in those with a family history of those conditions.
What may have a photosensitive trigger?
TV and computer screens that flicker
Cathode ray tube TVs (older box style) which ‘refresh’ the image, if this causes a flicker rate between 3 and 60 hertz (flashes per second).
Faulty TVs or other screens that flicker.
With 3D TV, switching suddenly between 3D and non-3D screens or channels while wearing 3D glasses may cause a lot of flicker for a few seconds, if the 3D signal to the glasses has not yet switched off.
A flashing image on a computer screen or game.
.What is unlikely to be a photosensitive trigger?
Triggers are individual, but the following sources in themselves are not generally likely to trigger photosensitive seizures.
UK TV programme content. Ofcom regulates material shown on TV in the UK. The regulations restrict the flash rate to 3 hertz or less, and restrict the area of screen allowed for flashing lights or alternating patterns.
Digital TV and plasma screens are unlikely to be a problem in themselves but this can depend on how large the screen is and the background lighting. Adjusting the brightness down on some screens can be helpful if you have photosensitive epilepsy.
3D TV is not in itself likely to be a problem (see above for possible risks with 3D TV).
What?Not even 2d glasses wouldn't work.
