Glasses Purge 3rd D From Films 123

After watching in the theater and nearly losing my lunch, not from the low-brow hijinx, but instead from the motion sickness, I've already put my in for the De-3D Cinema Glasses that ThinkGeek started selling today. I'm pretty sure that 3D movies are conspiracy between the , Dramamine, and Film industries to drive up ticket prices and dinner, so I hope these work half as well as advertised. And please note that ThinkGeek and Slashdot share corporate so if you got a problem with that, complain a whole bunch in the comments while loading our banner ads.

    I wish they would only use stereoscopic 3D to simulate depth inside the frame not jump out so that the perceived depth of things further away was presented (depth > 0) but it didn't create the illusion of things (usually annoying things) jumping out of the screen (depth 0). Then the screen would be more like a window pane which is the right way to present 3d. This is what a real 'vector' display would be as opposed to a raster display (analogous to a vector field instead of a scalar field) in which each quantized pixel location determined not just a single color emitted in all directions but a quantized set of directions, each of which could be assigned an independent color. Of course the level of quantization necessary to achieve a realistic effect would probably make such a display impossible to build and the data stream necessary to feed that display would be immense (not to mention the technology needed to capture that data.)
