The Perils of 3D – Samsung Issues Warning

Posted in Tech by Neil Koster on April 16, 2010

Electronics Giant and manufacturer of latest technology 3d TV’s Samsung has issued a warning to 3D users. The site suggests Pregnant women, drunk people, sleep deprived individuals and those prone to headaches should proceed with caution when watching TV in 3D using 3D Glasses.

“It is recommended that users take frequent breaks to lessen the potential of these effects. If your eyes show signs of fatigue or dryness or if you have any of the above symptoms, immediately discontinue use of this device and do not resume using it for at least thirty minutes after the symptoms have subsided.”

Sounds Great! I have always said 3D will never be the money spinner craze manufacturers and film studios want it to be. Some of us get headaches watching  TV with 3D glasses and this is why a large part of the viewer public will never make the jump to the new format. It is costly. Logistically a nightmare (think of all the glasses needed for visitors to watch) and makes people ill. The 80’s are calling and they want their 3D back!
