While I’m one of Duckrabbit’s guest bloggers I don’t write that much here. Most of my work doesn’t come under the ‘saving the world’ category. Generally clients pay me to make stuff look nice. I don’t do bullets, natural disasters, disease and certainly won’t bend over for a Turkish customs official! But give me a dead cockroach and I can make it look good enough to eat.
I also don’t tend to rant that much. It is a dangerous thing on the internet because there are always people who, know a lot more shit than you and will tell you so in brief and concise way using expletives and simple sentences.
But I’m going to rant and I don’t care. 3D IS TISH PISH TOSH and I don’t see a real future for it and I tell you why. Before I do watch the video below…….
When I first saw this I laughed so hard I pissed my pants. It is a piss-take but it could be very close to the truth. Manufacturers will go to extraordinary lengths to get you to buy their televisions and if it means passing a few volts of electricity through your brains then so be it.
It is just that our eyes are not designed to view things on a screen in 3D. Over the last couple of hundred thousand years we haven’t evolved that much. You’ve only to listen to a couple of Sky sports presenters to realize that! If the good Lord wanted us to see tv in 3D we’d be blinking involuntary and one eye would be bulging like a guppy fish.
It’s not that I’m old fashioned. I’ve embraced DSLR, recording audio with something more sophisticated than an electric razor and I’ve even embraced Marmite-flavoured chocolate but 3D tv is a long way off from convincing me that in the next 5 or 10 years all our eyes will be blinking uncontrollable at our television sets. Rant over…let the swearing begin.
