Why 3D Will Never Work Right

Why 3D Will Never Work Right

3D doesn't work, and it never will, according to acclaimed film reviewer and journalist Roger Ebert. As posted in an article to the Chicago Sun-Times, the reason for this is simple...our brains haven't evolved sufficiently to be able to see the images in three true dimensions. In a letter to Ebert, Oscar-winning editor Walter Murch (Apocalypse Now, The Godfather, The English Patient) tells us that the problem with being able to see 3D correctly is one of focus and convergence between our eyes and our brains.

This creates two large problems for viewers watching 3D film. The first is that the awareness the viewer has of the gimmick takes them out of being able to actually become immersed in the film. The other is that a good many people watching 3D get headaches as a result, because they are literally unable to process what's being put in front of them.

So, though 3D is undergoing a resurgence, it seems like something that has a very short shelf life, as we're not likely to evolve to understand it anytime soon. How about you? Do you have any 3D horror stories to share?

Mugshot Wars Is Ready To Suck Hours From Your Life

As you well know, half of all time spent on the internet involves choosing some sort of hot-or-not proposition*. If you watched The Social Network, you know that Facebook was started this way. Well, not to be outdone by Mr. Zuckerberg's monster, the good people at Mugshot Wars have upped the ante, allowing you to vote on the mugshot you find the most...appealing(?) in a series of "battles."

Seriously, these mugshots are awesome. Prepare to have much of your life sucked down a felonious tube. Let's just hope that Mugshot Wars doesn't evolve into a similar sort of social network,wherein felons and fans of the arrested "like" each other's pages and tell us about upcoming events.

Go enjoy Mugshot Wars right now!

 

*this is a totally made-up statistic.

World Record Dodgeball Game

Posted February 18, 2010 - By Moye Ishimoto

The G4 offices is a little Olympic crazy with all the winter competition going on, but let's be honest. Wouldn't the global sporting event be a little more interesting if all the contenders gathered in a big gym and threw a bunch of balls at each other instead?

The students and faculty of University of Alberta recently did exactly that, attempted to break the Guinness Book of World Record for the largest dodgeball game with over 1,200 players. Since the record holding game only had 450 people, I'm pretty sure this university earned the Guinness title.
