I think that 2D TV can also make you pretty sick--duh, it's the content, not the display, that is the real cause!

BicycleBill, yep, it's the content. But I am actually fascinated by the varying degree of 3-Dness you can create in 3-D content production. Obviously, there are still a lot to learn for every producer and camera person in the world... My question, though, is to extend this 3-D experience to a living room using obviously a much smaller screen compared to that of theater screen may cause more sickness to some people. "Is it still premature to bring 3-D TV home?" is essentially what I am asking.

I myself experience some uneasiness when trying 3D TV at a showroom. Should we bring a 3D tv home when one of family members is not willing to watch it in 3D?

Hi, t.alex. I have not thought about it before, but you make a good point. After all, a big screen 3-D TV in a living room is meant to be a shared experience for everyone in a family...

I would think it otherwise: 3D video isn't a very new thing. At least years back, Disney & IMAX had already set their place in this area. I believe there is definitely a lot of experts in this post-production area. As for my personal experience, the viewing sensation is great and I'm pretty much excited about this thing can be brought into our home. Some people may felt nausea because their eyeballs can't voluntarily focus on the virtual 3D object in the movie scene. I believe smaller screen should minimize that problem. At least, our eyes won't be overwhelmed by the small screen animation. Hmm....speaking of parallax 3D viewing...any news about holographic movie?

To say that Andy Weir's The Martian is an exploration of math, Mars, and feces is a slight simplification. I doubt that the author would have any complaints, though.
