When Jaws 3-D was released in 1983 they said it was going to revolutionise the cinema world. It didn’t. Instead it was a gimmick that disappeared for a while. But with 3-D enjoying a new lease on life and a bunch of the leading tech manufacturers trying to out 3D each other, maybe we should take a step back for a second.
Samsung has just warned that 3-D could cause light-headedness, nausea, dizziness, and twitching or even convulsions. Now that is starting to sound like the side effects the drug companies are forced to tell us about by the FDA.
With teens playing video games more than ever before and technology making us able to immerse ourselves in other fantasy worlds I guess a lot of people are going to be grabbing some ginger, or they may just be throwing up all over their screens.
With 3-D TV’s in stores soon Samsung apparently warned that parents should monitor their kids closely as they are more susceptible to the side effects than adults. Also we should take frequent breaks from watching to avoid eyestrain and possible motion sickness.
I don’t know about you guys, but if I am going to get seasick from watching some people on a TV screen I â€˜d rather be out in the world, maybe on a boat sipping ginger brew, than having to chug down anti nausea remedy because I had been sitting on my couch watching an action movie.
