3D appliances - Parents of young children take note.

Seek medical advice first before letting youngsters watch 3D.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-12100925


In issuing the warning, Nintendo joins Sony and Toshiba in alerting people to the ill effects that can attend watching 3D movies or playing 3D games.

Sony has already said that parents should get medical advice before letting children watch 3D content on the PlayStation. Toshiba has said parents should keep an eye on children watching its TVs that can display 3D images without needing glasses.

Re: 3D appliances - Parents of young children take note.

How does the 3D actually affect the eyesight of someone? The article is so very vague

Re: 3D appliances - Parents of young children take note.

Reminds me of the comment of a blonde coming out of "Avatar": "Pity life isn't in 3D too..."

I think there wiill be more to follow... But I would suggest eyestrain leading to muscle mal-development, or mis-development of muscle and lens etc.

Interesting that the manufacturers are coming out with this first.


EDIT
http://www.emaxhealth.com/1506/ninte...aying-3d-games


Nintendo will launch a new portable 3D video game player in 2011 but warns that it may not be suitable for children under the age of 6. The Japanese company warns that the use of such a device in 3D mode could potentially impact the development of children’s eyes.

The company states that experts have found that the delivery of different artificial images to the left and right eye, as what occurs in all 3D images, whether from television, movies or games, can affect the neural processing that is still in development in the eyes of young children.

Re: 3D appliances - Parents of young children take note.

This is a fantastic invention. It will desensitise children from being afraid of objects coming towards them, which will make it much easier to smack them in the face.

Re: 3D appliances - Parents of young children take note.

Way to new.. 99 Euro for a pair of 3D glasses?wtf.. what do i do when friends come by, buy a few more?

P'd off a sales guy who kept pushing a 3D tv on me.. i had the glasses on and put my hand on his shoulder while saying " oh my god, its so life like.. so real".. needles to say he didn't appriciate it yet his collegues burst out laughing

3D tv with or without glasses, i won't touch it for another while..call me old fashioned

Great warning , as kids we were told " don't sit to close to the tv,its not good for your eyes".. if an "old " tv did that,can't imagine what 3D tv does to it..

Re: 3D appliances - Parents of young children take note.

My Dad got a new 63'' 3D TV and the 3D is really very nice. But the eyestrain gets too much after about an hour.

I do have a lazy eye though and everyone else doesn't seem to notice it
