Watching Too Much Stereoscopic 3D Video Will Make You Blind!

April 1st, 2011 · 26 Comments · General 3D News


Scientist from the NAFD University have done some extensive research and have proven without a doubt that “watching too much stereoscopic 3D video will make you blind”! Now the big question is how much is exactly “too much” and this, according to leading ophthalmologists participating in the study is more than 1 hour a day. And watching stereo 3D content for more than 1 hour a day, everyday for a period of 30 days will reduce your vision two times and if you continue abusing your eyes with 3D content for one year like that you will most definitely get blind. But there are even more side effects attached, not only you will get blind, but it also impotent, demented and multiple other not so pleasant things regarding your own health. So be careful as this is affecting not only small children, but also grownup adults… we finally have the proof that stereo 3D is actually bad for your eyes. Now the only thing left is for the industry to start recalling back all 3D-capable products. You can find a link to the detailed report paper below.

    There is only one thing that makes you blind if you use it too often and that’s 4chan.

  • 18 dazbboaby // Apr 1, 2011 at 19:41

    Blind, impotent, and demented… sounds like they’re watching too much 3D Porn.
    First you go blind, then because you cant watch 3D porn anymore, you get impotent, then comes the demented.

  • 19 Oren // Apr 1, 2011 at 20:11

    OMG! That was so mean!!!
    I almost threw my 3D Vision glasses to the garbage because of this. :O

  • 20 Mathew Orman // Apr 1, 2011 at 20:15

    It is just garbage, unreadable text.
    Can you post it in PDF format please?

    God bless Saint Nicolas Cage! I’m reading your post from Spain and I was thinking that was a true post (because in our country, the Day of the Jokes is December 28th). Jajaja, fortunately I read the comments after… Congratulations for your blog, it’s a nice work.

    This reminds me of the magazine cover that showed Stevey Wonder wearing 3D glasses.
