Bill Nye the Science Guy talks 3D Disorientation!

Bill Nye the Science Guy has teamed up with VSP Eyecare to create some webisodes to learn about medical conditions of the eyes, and the very first episode happens to deal with 3D Films. The video aptly plugs the use of the iPad, as well as VSP’s current promotions, but it is interesting to see him address this trend.

Nye delivers his message with is standard TV Personality presence and discusses the disorientation that 3D may cause for some patrons. Is it a myth?

It is medical fact that 3D viewing can have an effect on a portion of the viewing audience, and its good to know that there are some simple fixes you can practice that can offset the disorientation. They estimate that 30% of people in the US suffer from the condition that MAY cause this disorientation. If these tricks don’t work for you, then you can just opt to see the movie in its traditional presentation.

Some people are over reacting and suggesting that ALL theaters will eventually be 3D. While its a popular trend and perhaps something that will grow, until they overcome these limitations they wont want to limit the theater’s patronage by making movies exclusively in a format that may affect such a percentage of their audience.

Should they improve this technology to perhaps using special screens and projectors that would provide an effective 3D presentation without the use of glasses, then I could see a shift in theatrical presentations.

Until then you will always have the choice.

Thanks Bill Nye!
