Watching 3D movies are unlikely to make you dizzy or feel drunk, according to a study in the UK.

The researchers say they could find no evidence the films upseting balance or coordination despite unconfirmed reports of what some call 3D motion sickness and warnings by manufacturers.

The researchers tested 433 people, aged from four to 82 years old, after watching Toy Story in either 2D or 3D, and found that there was no difference in stability or coordination.

“While no study can rule out any effect, this does increase confidence about viewing typical S3D (stereoscopic 3D) content,” the researchers say.

Dr Jenny Read of Newcastle University in the UK and colleagues published their findings in Royal Society’s Open Science.
