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.

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.

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.

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.

  • 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.

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.

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.

Avatar uses a totally different 3D method, similar to Kodak's Epcot show. Your glasses are not switched synchronously; the right and left sides have horizontal and vertically polarised lenses which allow the eye to see horizontall and vertically polarised projections which is very similar to normal vision.

I have been using 3D shutter glasses for gaming since I bought the Elsa 3D Revelator glasses for my GeForce 2 GTS card back in 2001. First with ELSA's own drivers, then later using Nvidia 3D Stereo drivers, for GeForce 4, FX, and 6800. The only problems I had was that I had to use a much lower resolution on my CRT to get the 120 Hz that gelt comfortable than the resolution I could get using standard 85 Hz. Also, most games used a lot of non-3D stuff for effects like smoke etc, so I had to turn those effects off. After some years, when trying games at my friends, using no glasses, it felt like.. really bad. So I am very excited about these new 200 Hz / 240 Hz screens. I believe if the 3D content is good, there will be a lot o f people buying these. Also, at least on ELSA's and Nvidia drivers, one can adjust all those settings so it fits your own eyes. For a TV set with several people watching at the same time... it's a bit more difficult, of course!

Using 3D in moderation is the answer. During action scenes we can use 3D, other listening and thinking parts of the story (if there is a story) can be listened to and watched "the old way." Unfortunately action is the focus and story is simply an annoying afterthought to movie makers focusing on special effects. Avatar is a welcome exception that combines both.
