Is 3D More of a Pain Than It’s Worth?

The industry seem intent that 3D will permeate everything from movies to still photography and video all the way to smartphone displays. The promises of grandeur sound as if we’re being thrown into new and valuable dimension. Yet, beyond these promises little has been done to address the unwarranted side effects that are often inflicted on people. 3D has generated reports of problems that include nausea, headaches, dizziness, and seizures. What’s behind all of this? Profits! The companies behind all of this are kind of stuck as they search for the next big profitable thing. Prices for this technology have dropped more suddenly than expected due to low demand. Hypothetically, if these products take off the bottom line could be so well padded that any anticipated lawsuits that develop could still be settled leaving a good bottom line when all is said and done. For those who don’t current embrace 3D nor have the least interest in it there are solutions. Continue to use 2D equipment. Or, as Peter Svensson suggests you can close one eye.

    It’s simply another added viewing feature – like Close Captioning or Surround Sound…
