Nintendo: Kids Shouldn’t Play in 3D

Could Nintendo have made a misstep with its upcoming glasses-free 3D handheld gaming device? The company has issued a warning saying that children shouldn’t use the Nintendo 3DS because it could damage their vision. Adults may not be entirely safe either: The company recommends that they take a break every 30 minutes from 3D games, and that they stop playing immediately if they feel ill. The 3DS presents different images to the left and right eyes without needing glasses; however, it will have a sliding bar to allow players to adjust the level of 3D.
