    The world seems to have less color and even tho we live in the 4D(if you didn't know, look it up), It's like the world doesn't pop out as much. And when I look at 2D, such as my laptop, my mind seems to push icons in 3D and it's really starting to trip me out. And no I don't smoke or anything else and oddly, I've only had my 3DS for 1 day.

    The weirdest thing is that I go see 3D movies all the time.

    this sounds potentially bad. try not to let the information out if it gets progressively more pop out-able. you dont want scientists to snatch you up and study your eyes and brains to see how they can harvest your special powers

    Do you mean like when you look at your computer screen or something things seem to be turned into 3D like text and stuff? Because if thats what your talking about, that happened to me to, but it went away in about 3 or 4 days. Cant remember.

    In spite of the joking comments -- and honestly, I don't know if you yourself are being serious -- I actually experienced some slight...well, I'll call it "decompression" after testing the system out for the first time at Best Buy. For my personal experience, I'd say I simply noticed the edges of things more. We went to eat Chinese after shopping, and when I looked out the window at the trees, everything just looked sharper. It only lasted a short time, but it was an interesting state. I think it was nothing more than just being more visually aware due to my experience with the 3DS. I don't think anything physically and/or physiologically changed.

    From what I understand, eyes have muscles just like many other parts of the body. We're probably using certain muscles more than we normally do when viewing the 3DS with the 3D turned up.

    Well I experienced something similar when I was playing MKDS on my 3DS. The text you get when you take out the cartridge (white text on a black screen) looked like it popped out slightly.

    The world doesn't pop out as much because it doesn't pop out in the first place. It just is 3D. The games on the 3DS have something to pop out of.

    And I assume the 3D effect on the 3DS is overdone and brighter for the wow factor, so "real life 3D" looks flatter.


    Also, @ the laptop thingy, that's pretty cool.

    Why, I do believe I might also be experiencing this phenomena myself, though i had suspected it was my monocle at first.

    It has not yet stopped working for me though.

    Turn the 3D off for a while. Shouldn't be using it every time you play the console anyways. It's not safe.

    I noticed that when I view other LCD devices such as my phone and PSP, my eyes try to see the layers in 3D, or I expect there to be a 3D element. I never get dizzy or disoriented, but I have noticed some effects after using the 3DS often. I'm also getting used to the 3D, because I don't notice it as much anymore, unless I play something in 2D, like my PSP.

    Photographs always look 3D for me right after playing the 3DS.
    It's weird.
    It's awesome! [​IMG]

    Must be nice to enjoy 3d I guess. I wouldn't know, I can't see depth (no I'm serious, problem with my eyes). When I went to see Avatar, I'm sure I missed most of the 3d.

    My eyes both see independently, not in stereo. It's not all that thrilling, picture seeing everything you see twice. MY depth is actually software depth as explained to me by my eye doctor. I can see depth artificially as a function of how my brain was taught. I only need one eye to see what you see in stereo with two. But it isn't true stereo and as such, I can't see depth like you do. Ya know the black n grey image they show you at the eye doctor and they ask you, what do you see in the greyish grainy image, to me, there simply isn't anything there. I can't do those clever images on the internet as well. Sort of like I have the wrong software.

    Not all bad though. If I ever lost one of my eyes, it wouldn't matter to my vision. I walk around with one eye closed most of the time to begin with.

    What really freaks out people though, is my eyes can see in opposing directions when I get tired.

    Got that on the first few days of 3DS, when i was reading on my PC, especially on white background, it looked as the letters and a few icons were popping out, but not anymore.

    I think it's just like when you rollerskate a lot when you are beginning, then when you go to bed at night, you feel your body swinging.
