From the technology perspective, health hazards could be mitigated with a '3D ready with option to turn off' as needed for any discomfort. It should not be a big deal, after all no-one is driving or operating heavy machinery while watching (who knows, may be there will case uses who do just that ). My discomfort on the technology front is the various confusing options and standards (my automated research assistant Wiki P Dia can attest to that). From a consumer perspective, I cannot get over the glasses required inconvenience (specially since I already wear glasses) so always-wear glasses will never be an option for me. Maybe one session here and there could be tolerable but this brings up the need for extra spending (aka pocket hazard) when I am still enjoying the Blu Ray 1080p experience and expenditure. So I would encourage autostereoscopic solutions and closure on standards for now.

While I'm not sure exactly what technology Samsung is using, it sure seems as though using cross polarized glasses combined with right and left pixels on the television would not be difficult or that costly to implement. By encloding DVD's or Blurays at 1/2 resolution with adjacent left and right pixels and a TV that had the associated pixels polarized appropriately, it seems this would be simple to produce. A plasma TV should be backward compatible with existing bluray and dvd standards. This is likely to be problematic in many types lcds however, depending on how they're implemented (some already have polarizers). Back to the topic of seizures however, their warning seems somewhat "boilerplate." As far as people who already use glasses, crossed polarizers are easy to clip onto any existing glasses.

  • I wanted to make a short 3-D animation and discussed with the specialists from an animation company in Los Angeles about the hazards potentially associated with the technology. By using the 200 Hz / 240 Hz screens and 3-D glasses switched synchronously the chances of photosensitive seizures considerably lowers, especially at children.

Not sure is the eye problems you are referring to were caused by displays, but you definitely should visit your doctor as soon as you  develop any such symptoms.

Little kids should try to avoid watching movies on 3D TV`s because they are more disposed to have dizziness or altered vision problems. If you notice your kids have such symptoms take him immediately to the MD Hostipal for further investigations.

Technology advances have come really far, and now they are connected with the physical world. Literally they can tell you if you are having any type of problem, and this is amazing, because as soon as you know something is not right, you can go and have a fast check-up with RapidTest.com or just have a routine control with your own physician.

For so long, there has been this great debate about merging artificial inteligence with everyday activities and so far, it is a fact that this is the future. As seen on http://www.kwitko.com/ many more new technologies and equipment will help with the better dignosis of the patients and although it has its risks, this action will help treatments to become more efficient.
