A few minutes is absolutely fine, but if you put strain on your eyes' muscles for prolonged periods of time, it may cause severe damage, but it's only a possibility.

There's no reason why the 3DS should put strain on your eyes. Unlike the cross-eyed steroscopic images, the 3DS's natural projection for both eyes means that you should be able to relax and focus normally. A bit like if you were looking out a window.

Take the avatar video as an example. It doesn't work right with the cross-eyed method. The focal distance isn't constant, so attempting to "look around" the scene just causes the whole thing to fall apart. So I got out my red/cyan glasses and watched it in that mode. Other than seeing red/blue splotches for a few minutes after watching it (side effect of using those stupid glasses) my eyes were able to focus normally the entire time. And I must say, the effect is quite good even with such primitive 3D glasses.

The biggest concern you're going to have is with mental disorientation. You stare at one thing for long enough and it takes some time to readjust when you look elsewhere. That's already a problem with handheld video game, but may be exasperated by the need to hold still in order to see the 3D effect. As with any video game, take regular breaks. :)

It shouldn't have a problem with most peoples eyes. Back with the virtual boy it did bother a few peoples eyes legitimately alone as they can't handle well the processing of both imagines. Most the issue with the virtual boy was being captive in a dark room with that shade losing all sense of surrounding, truth depth perception, lack of strong light other than cornea piercing red, and lack of special perception. This would often cause dizziness, nausea, jacked up depth perception, headaches, eye pain, you name it.

The 3DS though works in a non dark room environment, uses all colors, and you're not slammed up right against it. It has all that going for it. But those same people who want to blow chunks from 3D motion whether it's the weak stomachs that would chuck in 1993 when DOOM came out, or those who can't handle a faked 3D like this thing or the VB will still be SOL. And then the small amount of those who got eyes who can't handle dual imagery not related to that but just can't process it, that or people blind in one eye just can't play in 3D as it's beyond their reach.

There are actually a good number of cross-eyed 3D pictures and videos available on the web if you search, all of them working far more realistically than these faked 3DS shots. Frankly, the effect is amazing when you can get it to work. It's the original glassesless 3D! I do recommend seeking some out if you want to get a better idea what 3DS should look like. Just don't do it for too long, for reasons ProtoZone already explained.

Sorry, my fault. I got confused by the "long periods" comment. Can't see too many people staring at cross-eyed sterographs for extended periods. Too painful. :p

@thewiirocks: Well, there are some videos and sites that seem to be designed for such use, so it's a legitimate warning.

To make a 3D picture is not really that hard. Al you need is a subject with proper lighting and colours as well as a camera with which you take one picture slightly more to the left or right than the other, both in portait orientation. If you put them next together after downloading them to a computer, you should be able to get this effect. I tried it out myself yesterday and it worked. It was pretty hard to see, though as the background was to dark during the evening to really notice it. I'm gonna try it again. If I get one that works well, I'll post it here.

EDIT: OK I made a picture of my TV, DVD player and the Nintendo, then took it again 1 or 2 inches more to the left and it definitely works, try it out:

Some of the screenshots had weird layering for me. The Kingdom Hearts, OoT, and some of the RE: Revelations ones were the best when I looked at them.

I'm pretty sure I think I'm funnier than I really am.

It's not that difficult. Scroll to the picture on this page of the tv case. Next, hold out two fingers, one of each hand. I taught my sister by keeping her hand together. Thumbs nails to the front next to each other and holding out the pointerfingers with the nails to the outside and nuckles of the other fingers against each other and stretch your arm a bit.

First try to squint just enough so that the thumbs fall together. This is a small distance so should be pretty easy. The trick is not the squint full on, but just a little bit. When the thumbs fall together (so you basically see three thumbs right next to each other), lets move on to the pointer fingers. No you have to squint a bit more. If it's difficult to close the distance between the fingers, try stretching your arms more so that the distance between your eyes and your fingers is bigger. A bigger distance makes is more easier to use the cross eyed technique. If the pointer fingers fall together (and you see three), then move on to the picture. Focus on overlapping the Wii's, add more distance if between you and the screen if you think that the distance between the Wii's are to big.

I hope it helps.

You guys can just watch that on the Youtube website and if you have 3D glasses you can choose which kind and not cross your eyes.

Doesn't that ruin the point of the 3DS' ban against glasses?

It works a bit. I see the depth where the Wii is.
