We love 3D movies. They are the next best thing to free air, that you can get. While we are not in love with the fact that some movie theaters now charge attendees extra to be air-punched in the face, we do enjoy the experience, on the norm.
It also makes us sick and we are not alone.
Granted, we are more sickened by a car ride on a hot day. Nevertheless.
It was January 15, 2010. While many were having a great time watching the 3D presentation of "Avatar" at the AMC theater, I was having a completely different experience. About an hour into the movie, I started feeling really sick, and I mean, REALLY sick.

According to a new article at NBC News, an average of 55% of viewers, during a study experienced at least one symptom of sickness, which include nausea, vision issues and dizziness.
The same article says that the problems arise from the difference of the distances from which our eyes focus and converge. This causes a slight disharmony and this is where the sickness comes from.
