Nintendo 3DS: "Thanks Nintendo"
Posted: Tuesday January 11th, 2011 by

Apparently the soon to be released Nintendo 3DS will come with a warning that children under the age of 6 shouldn't play the system for due to concerns that it may endanger their eyesight. Opthalmologists wave off the idea. Nintendo's president Satoru Iwata clarified that the warning is there to prevent potential lawsuits. [more info] Blah blah blah.

Now, I've heard this same story with 3D movies. We even took theKid to see the non 3D version of Toy Story 3 when it came out just in case. But really that was more about the belief that he just wouldn't wear the glasses the whole time and frankly I was more worried about the blurry movie (without glasses) causing his eyes to hurt more so than the 3D itself.

Concerns still hover around children watching 3D in the home due to the proximity of the screen. And where I admit to not being sure if it is or isn't an actual problem, my inclination is to avoid it until there is a definitive answer or the kid is old enough to be out of the perceived danger zone. **shrugs**
