      3D TV health warning

      found this article on my travels

      Samsung has issued a health warning about its new 3D television sets two months prior to their launch.

      A message on the company's website notes that pregnant women, the elderly, children and persons with serious medical conditions could be at risk.

      The firm explained that adverse conditions resulting from 3D viewing include "confusion, nausea, convulsions, altered vision, lightheadedness, dizziness and involuntary movements such as eye or muscle twitching and cramps".

      The side-effects are apparently induced by the electronic system required to view 3D images on the set - particularly the battery-operated 3D glasses which sync the left and right images to the TV screen and force the brain to process them together as a single 3D perception.

      The warnings are believed to have been unveiled well in advance of the release date in order to protect Samsung against the possibility of future lawsuits from those who might be affected by their 3D systems.
      might put a few people off

      I get these symptoms without watching 3D, the other half says it is the Bacardi I use to water down my cola that causes it. She doesn't have a medical degree, so I don't believe her.

      I remember when the original black and white TV came out. There were lots of health warnings about how it could damage your eyes and optic nerves if you watched it too long and if you didn't have a soft light in the background. Everybody rushed out and bought 'TV' lights.

      The difference this time is it's the TV manufacturers who are making the warning - not a bunch of badly informed alarmists. The warning does need recognition because placing 3D cameras in a 2D production can cause all sorts of sensory problems - 3D is to give a more realistic effect to the picture and our eyes don't zoom and we keep our heads pretty still when watching things so the antics of some TV productions are unsuitable for direct translation into 3D.
