3D TV may be trouble for kids, drunks and others | MyCE – My Consumer Electronics

From the article:

... "It’s not clear what exactly will happen to people who don’t follow Samsung’s guidelines, but the company lists nine symptoms to watch out for, including altered vision, lightheadedness, dizziness, involuntary movements such as eye or muscle twitching, confusion, nausea, convulsions, cramps and disorientation. Viewers should stop watching and consult a medical specialist immediately if any of these symptoms are experienced." ...

Makes me want to run out and by one. Also most of those symptoms apply to people who are drunk. So being drunk and watching 3-D TV = bad combination

OMG who would go to the cinema drunk to see a 3D movie? But I agree that unless you're used to it, it can cause certain dizzyness, as if you were playing a videogame for hours and hours


Those all seem to be symptoms of intoxication, so are they trying to say that 3d tv will make you drunk!?!? That would be the cheapest beer buzz investment ever. Finally someone found a way to combine TV and alcohol! Woo Hoo! In all seriousness though I tried a 3d Tv out at BestBuy and wasn't too impressed. Maybe 3d Tv just isn't for me.
