Samsung details the dangers of 3D TV for Australians

Those who thought 3D TV is only a danger to their pocketbooks and sanity only know part of the story. According to a "health warning" Samsung has put on its Australian website, 3D TV could be harmful to elderly viewers and drunks.

The biggest concerns to the company--or perhaps to the company's Australian lawyers have--are headaches and other medical risks. There's another thought, however. Since young people are naturally attracted to anything that's either bad and/or dangerous, this could add a bit of cachet to 3D. After all, while elderly drunks may wear silly glasses, it's highly unlikely they'll be used for 3D TV.
