Windows 7: 3D could ruin your depth perception

3D could ruin your depth perception

Quote:
That's the problem. When the movie's over, and you take your glasses off, your brain is still ignoring all those depth perception cues. It'll come back to normal, eventually. Some people will snap right back. In others, it might take a few hours. This condition, known as 'binocular dysphoria', is the price you pay for cheating your brain into believing the illusion of 3D. Until someone invents some other form of 3D projection (many have tried, no one has really succeeded), binocular dysphoria will be part of the experience.

It's probably the glasses. What more uncomfortable can you get? My eyes felt like they were going to explode.

If they could figure out how to layer a screen in a 3 dimensional manner without eye-wear. Now that would definitely be pretty cool.

Makes me think twice about going to see Alice and Wonderland, lol

Iv heard rumors for awhile that they were working on 3d without the glasses.

I think I'll stick to a traditional theater viewing, or the occasional Imax.

And there's no way 3-D television sets are going to be successful either. Maybe to a serious tech enthusiast or just a "look what I got" piece.

Due to eye issues, I live in a 2 dimensional world visually... Ironically, a 3D movie is the only time I see clearly in 3 dimensions. I find it a very interesting and fun experience.

3D is not quite the same as real life 3D perception. Sorry.

I'm waiting to see Clash of the Titans. I love the original, and the new one in 3D looks to be awesome.

I admit, this sounds like a realistic theory, not just some hater looking for excuses.

Perhaps the 3D makers should use ALL the cues?

Laying down new image, dont want to ruin current Office 2010 key
So, I'll be reimaging my PC shortly to Win7 64 bit, and I am just not certain if I'll be able to re-use my Office 2010 key once the new image is applied and the PC is ready to go. Any one else done this? I'm not 100 percent on how these keys are tracked, and the best way to do this. Thanks for...

Perception changes fast
Isn't it ironic that pretty much everyone hated Windows Vista (which I ran before Windows 7) and from an appearance point of view, Windows 7 is not really any different; but everyone loves Windows 7. Funny how a few good commercials from Microsoft changes things. As a matter of fact, Apple is...

In depth look Windows 7
Given that I knew most of you would be virtually blasted out of your chairs by a “shock and awe” of Windows 7 reviews once the news embargo on the OS was lifted (combined with the fact that I only got my hands on a copy of Build 6801 a couple of days later), I decided to take my time to get to...
