Why does every bit of news regarding new 3D technology get hijacked by people whinging and moaning about how they cant see it, or dont like it, or cant use it etc. There is a huge community of glasses wearing people with nothing better to do than complain about 3D glasses.
Are they just out to ruin it for the rest of us? Nothing better to do than moan? or just jealous?
I saw Avatar in 3D, not only was it an amazing movie I thought the 3D was great and really added (pardon the pun) Depth to the movie. Yet every single thing written about it on the net is loaded with comments from people saying things like
“As someone who has to wear corrective glasses and I’m married to someone who is blind in one eye, I agree with nkkinston that I’m hoping it’s a fad.” -(from comments on a BBC story).
Great, you can’t see it so why should the rest of us? Nice attitude.
I cant swim, but I dont go out complaining about swimming pools or moaning about swimwear. I just dont go near them.
I blame this sort of overly negative backlash for the lack of 3D until now. Yeah, the red/green glasses were not so great, but they worked and I thought it was great having 3D on any existing hardware. The negative coments killed that system almost right away.
Its taken years for the industy to rally from that defeat, lets not crush this new wave of actualy pretty amazing 3D by allowing a minority to portray a negative image on behalf of the whole population.
