If 3D Movies Make You Feel Sick, It's Likely All In Your Mind

The realism of today’s 3D blockbusters can blow audiences away. By using 3D glasses to present different images to the two eyes, stereoscopic 3D technology fools the brain into believing it is viewing a real scene rather than a flat image on a screen.

You'll Buy A VR Headset For The Movies, Not The Games

Giz Explains: Why Frame Rate Matters

We all know the motion picture is a lie. That movement on screen? It’s just a bunch of still images. Still images that seem more like believable, realistic, lifelike motion the faster they flicker along. Faster is better, and that 48 frame-per-second version of The Hobbit was just the beginning.
