      3D TV is not for everyone. It is known to cause problems for some people, particularly if the room is badly lit or the person starts to experience headaches. Prolonged viewing time is also not recommended.

      However I would say that the current system used in the Cinema is far better that the system that uses coloured plastic specs. The systems used on TVs can be a little annoying with the flicker system adopted by many.

      The glasses are very expensive though and I can't see many Pubs or clubs showing 3D content.

      It's already a dying format and will go the way of other failed technologies.

      'Dying', it's growing? There's more and more 3D content on sky as each week goes by. The BBC have shown their first 3D event and ITV are in the testing phase.

      Whether it's ultimately successful who knows, but it's currently a growing format not dying.

      Even video games make me dizzy and motion sick, especially the RPG ones, so probably not for me

      Yep it's not really for me neither.

      There's lots of people that don't enjoy theme parks as the rides make them ill, but theme parks are still very successful.

      Until they master glasses free 3d with no flicker etc then I can't see it being mainstream, but that doesn't mean it won't be a success.

      I was in comet this morning and they had a couple of the new LG TVs on show.

      these TVs use the same 3D system that you can get in the Cinema. They supply several glasses with each TV, but you could also use the odd pair from the local Cinema.
